KESELOWSKI OUTLASTS THE FIELD AT TALLADEGA

OCTOBER 20, 2017 - NOVEMBER 2, 2017
 
 
In what has become a regular occurrence in the last 5 years Brad Keselowski found himself in victory lane yet again at Talladega. The 2012 cup champion got a great start to the race by edging out teammate Joey Logano to win stage 1. After avoiding all 3 of the big ones at Dega, Keselowski found himself in second behind Ryan Newman in the final laps. Keselowski would get help from Joey Logano as he pushed him past Newman for the win. With this win it marks his 5th win at Talladega and advances Brad to the round of 8, so Brad can take it easy this weekend at Kansas.
            
With the big ones taking out almost all of the playoff contenders some lesser known drivers snuck in to get top 10 finishes including guys like Aric Almirola, and Grey Gaulding who registered his first top 10 finish this weekend. In his final Talladega start Dale Jr. made the most of it and started on the pole. Despite being in the top 5 for the final restart, Jr. was unable to compete with Keselowski and finished 7th. Dale finishes his career at Talladega with 7 wins only behind his Dad for the most wins at the 2.5 mile track.

Talladega took its toll on the playoff drivers as only 2 of the 12 drivers in the playoffs finished in the top 10. The drivers who took the biggest hit in the race were Jamie McMurray and Kyle Busch. Busch is currently behind the cutoff line by 7 points as McMurray is in a must win scenario at Kansas being behind the cutoff line by 29 points.
