Brad Keselowski Survives Wild Talladega

Brad Keselowski survived a wild Talladega race that left only 5 cars without some form of damage. Keselowski took the lead and held off hard charging Kyle Busch to gain his 4th career win at Talladega and 2nd win of 2016. A race filled with wrecks and impending weather threats, we left Talladega with everyone alive so we are Thankful. Kyle Busch, Austin Dillon, Jamie McMurray, and Chase Elliott rounded out the Top 5. After 3 wrecks contender Michael McDowell was relegated to a 21st place finish but was still improving and noticeable.
