Jamie McMurray Wins At Talladega

It was one of the cleanest races I can recall at NASCAR’s longest track. There was a minor crash early in the race, then 103 consecutive green flag laps until rookie Austin Dillon lost control in the second turn of the final lap and was struck from behind by Casey Mears.

It brought out the yellow and checkered flag together, with Jamie McMurray crossing the finish line first for his seventh career victory – his first since 2010 and his second at Talladega.

You felt it coming and it didn’t come until the last lap – the big one at Talladega. It involved 20 cars.

Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Ryan Newman, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Casey Mears, Paul Mennard and many others were involved.

Keselowski Uses Late Pass To Win At Talladega [VIDEO]

The pack was back at Talladega and it was in response to fan complaints that they didn’t like the tandem style racing we saw at the restrictor plate tracks last year.  NASCAR made adjustments and it brought back the high speed, on the edge of your seat type racing that fans really enjoy.  After a crash with four laps left, it came down to a two lap race to the finish and it was Brad Keselowski who used a big push from Kyle Busch to get by Matt Kenseth, and then held off Busch for his second win this season.

Bowyer Wins At Talladega [VIDEO]

Finally a win for Clint Bowyer. He ran out of gas while leading last month at New Hampshire and last spring at Talladega Jimmie Johnson got a push from Dale Earnhardt, Junior past Bowyer for the victory. Bowyer had to settle for second.

Yesterday at Talladega, Bowyer was pushing Jeff Burton around the track until the final turn when he pulled out and around Burton to take the lead. Burton expected Bowyer to make his move, but thought he might have made it too soon. Bowyer won it by half a car length for his fifth career victory and first this year. It’s also Bowyer’s second win in 12 starts at Talladega.
