Talladega Recap

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway was a bit unique for the large track that has become well known for major late race accidents that often involve a large portion of the cars in the field. Although nerves were certainly still on edge and the race still had its share of moments that took your breath away, the big chain reaction wreck never occurred.

Fortunately for Joe Gibbs Racing all three of its teams managed to avoid the accidents that did occur and when it was over Kyle Busch led the way with a fifth-place finish, while Matt Kenseth finished 20th and a engine failure left Denny Hamlin back in 38th.

With four races remaining in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship, Kenseth is now second in the point standings, trailing Jimmie Johnson by just four points. Meanwhile Kyle Busch was able to climb two spots in the standings and is now third and just 26 points behind Johnson.

Matt Kenseth Wins at Chicagoland!

After several weeks of great weather on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit, the rain finally caught up in Chicago, delaying the start of today’s Geico 400 and then causing a long red flag delay just before the halfway mark. The delay would last more than five hours and day would turn to night before the green flag was waved once again, but once it did Joe Gibbs Racing would prove to be the dominant team with Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch taking turns at the lead before finishing first and second to open the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship.

Denny Hamlin appeared certain to join his teammates in the top ten before a late-race engine issue sent him to the garage with 20 laps to go and left him to finish back in 33rd.
