Earnhardt flirts with pole before Stenhouse steals show

Earnhardt flirts with pole before Stenhouse steals show

"I believed in all the guys that I had around me and the team, that they still wanted the same thing that I wanted, and that was to get back in victory lane, to compete, and to know that we're here every weekend like we were in the Xfinity Series", Stenhouse said. "Unfortunately our circumstances didn't quite go our way, but we go to a real race track next week and we'll try to win there".

"When I won at Kentucky (an ARCA race in 2008), he climbed the fence, and I climbed the other side and met him at the top", Stenhouse said. "We did all we could here today, and it's all circumstantial on how you win these things", Busch said.

"All the Fords look fast and it doesn't really matter where you start here because it's such a chaotic race and it's the luck of the draw on how you finish", said Bayne. "I think if I go in thinking this is a must-win, then I'm probably going to get in there and make a few mistakes".

"I wasn't feeling a lot of confidence in the vehicle", Earnhardt said.

Steve Newmark, president of Roush Fenway Racing, called it "the most gratifying win since I've been at Roush". This is cool. The closest track to my hometown (Olive Branch, Mississippi). Aric Almirola finished fourth, Kurt Busch sixth, and Brad Keselowski seventh. Dale Earnhardt Jr., making one of his final starts at a track where he ranks second in career wins (behind only his father), was forced to pit from third place in the closing laps, thanks to a loose wheel.

"The Big One" as expected reared its ugly head late in the race and involved 19 cars including Elliot, Truex Jr, Harvick, Bayne and as stated, Danica Patrick.

"When they have too big of a run, you can't do anything about it", said Busch. "I haven't been able to finish, but this was a track I just wanted to survive at until we get to another race". The guys at Joe Gibbs Racing did a great job and TRD (Toyota Racing Development) with everyone on this motor, it was awesome. We did all we could here today. Clint Bowyer finished 14th and Kevin Harvick 23rd, the last vehicle on the lead lap. He sustained some damage in the lap-169 accident, but it was not enough to keep him from drafting well. After a tap from the No. 47 Chevrolet of AJ Allmendinger, the No. 24 Chevy of Chase Elliott turned sideways across traffic on the backstretch.

Green flag pit stops began on Lap 144, and after the field cycled through it was all Toyota in the top-five, with Busch leading the pack.

"It was very disappointing", Dale, Jr. said. If a team can't fix its damage on pit road in five minutes, the auto is ruled out of the race. Almirola didn't win the race, but losing 35 points could see him drop from 17th down to a tie for 21st with Daniel Suarez and moving Kasey Kahne into the bubble spot just outside the playoffs. He comes to Talladega as a two-time victor of this race.

Having announced his retirement from Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series racing at the end of the year, Earnhardt will have one more shot at a seventh Talladega victory when the series returns during The Playoffs on October 15.
