The outcome of the race changed very quickly on those final two laps. The #41 Kurt Busch started on the pole and was followed by his three teammates the #4 of Kevin Harvick, #14 Clint Bowyer and #10 Aric Almirola.

"We just had a bad race vehicle and were really slow all weekend", Larson said after the race. Talladega marks the middle race of the second round of NASCAR's playoffs, and four drivers will be trimmed from the grid after next week's race at Kansas. "I think we're up to it".

"My spotter said clear, and I just wasn't clear enough", Peters said of his move on Gragson. "They said, 'Well, we had to dispatch an ambulance". "He's like, 'You're going to win, I promise you". But it should be fine.

"The four of us work pretty closely together, the four teams do".

He needed a little luck to do it when teammate Kurt Busch ran out of gas heading into the final turn allowing Almirola to claim his second career victory and first since 2014.

"That's good stuff", Busch said. "The guys that qualified good are the ones you would expect to".

The four drivers in danger of elimination next week at Kansas are Brad Keselowski, his Team Penske teammate Ryan Blaney, Kyle Larson and Bowman. Larson got his lap back as the beneficiary under caution for the end of Stage 2. Harvick topped the practice board at 204.227 miles per hour.

From a handling standpoint, the No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota of defending Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. was pure evil on Sunday at Talladega. Wallace had to complete both a practice session and Saturday qualifying without harming his Chevrolet because RPM did not bring a backup auto. They both finished outside of the top-25 and now enter next weekend needing both stage points and a top-10 to likely advance. The Daytona 500 vehicle was auctioned off in May for a little over $80,000.

Stewart-Haas Racing looked unstoppable in the NASCAR playoffs race at Talladega. The 32 auto then kept rolling, which is certainly a sign for us that we're OK to keep going.

Instead of winning the race, Almirola finished 13th as Chase Elliott took the checkered flag in overtime and earned automatic advancement to the Round of 8.

Kyle Larson's championship chances took a huge hit when he crashed during the playoff race at Talladega Superspeedway.

It also snapped a 149-race losing streak for Almirola and atoned for his oh-so-close moment in the season-opening Daytona 500. The network is taking over the IndyCar package next season and Wells is in charge of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing".

"There was two missed calls by NASCAR at the end", Busch told NBC after the race.
