Talladega Lives Up to the Hype With ‘Big One’, [VIDEO]

Proving that Talladega can be the most unpredictable race in the Chase, Matt Kenseth escaped a massive pileup in Turn 4 on Lap 189 of Sunday’s Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 at Talladega Superspeedway to win the fourth race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Jeff Gordon likewise dodged the 25-car crash — triggered by contact between Tony Stewart and Michael Waltrip — finishing second, followed by Kyle Busch, David Ragan, and Regan Smith.

Brad Keselowski finished seventh and extended his championship lead to 14 points over Jimmie Johnson.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was also caught up in the ‘Big One’,  finishing 20th, sounding frustrated from the garage area:

“I don’t even want to go to Daytona and Talladega next year, but I ain’t got much choice.”

Kenseth was happy with his win as he spoke from victory lane:

“I didn’t know what was going happen and I’m still not sure what happened. Somehow, I think Tony got turned and caused a big wreck.”

NASCAR heads to Charlotte, North Carolina next week.


Poll: Now that we are closing in on the half-way mark of the Chase, who’s going to win the NASCAR Championship?
