Talladega slips thru the fingers of Kyle Busch as Ricky Stenhouse Jr takes the race on the final lap
Talladega was a great race that ended with only one spectacular crash as Ricky Stenhouse Jr won on the final lap of the 188 lap race
At some point, I might start to feel bad for Kyle Busch. Several times this Nascar season he had the best car on the track and came up empty for various reason. The Joey Logano fight at Las Vegas, bad luck at Phoenix, tires exploding at Martinsville and line violations at Richmond and now Talladega. Kyle Busch led 48 of the 188 laps in Sunday’s race and slipped to third place as Ricky Stenhouse Jr turned the thrusters on in the final lap with Jamie McMurray to win the race.

“It’s frustrating, but all in all, it’s good to get out of here in one piece,” Busch said.
“He got a push off of [Turn] 2, I guess,” Busch said. “He got to my back bumper and actually hit me, and I thought that was going to shoot me forward. And he just turned left and passed me after hitting me. Pretty impressive.”
Ricky Stenhouse Jr, a two-time Nascar developmental series champion, claimed his first win in the Monster Energy Cup series at Talladega.
The big ticket crash came on lap 169 with a 17 car pile up and a scary scene. All of the drivers were ok but saw AJ Allmendinger and Chase Elliott get airborne.
