The Final Lap


We had big Rex watermelon smashing and a whole lot more Talladega super speedway was the site of NASCAR Cup Series racing. Let's run things down ten to one. You got Kevin Harvick who had a bouncy race car to begin this race. Then he got Alex Bowman, Michael McDowell, chase Elliott 7. Erik Jones had a checkered flag in his sights just a couple hundred yards to go. He ends up 6th on the day. Martin Truex Junior Kyle Larson led 32 laps, his first top 5 on a super speedway believe it or not, Kyle Busch. Oh boy, when asked about his contract extension, he said, I don't know. Ask Joe Gibbs. He ends up third. Austin Dillon at number two. To victory lane, Ross Chastain, grabs his second win of the season and his career after leading just one lap of the race, the final lap. Yes, a watermelon was smashed. Yes, he popped out of the roof hatch, and yes, he gave the fans some sort of black thing from his clothing. I don't know. Other stories on the day, we saw mostly single file racing. Stage one winner went to Bubba Wallace and stage two went to William Byron. There was a massive ten car wreck involving Joey Logano, Austin Cedric ty Dillon, Daniel Suarez, Cole Custer, and many, many more.

NASCAR Xfinity series racing from Talladega Superspeedway and by .131 seconds, Noah Gregson holds off the poll center Jeffrey Earnhardt, who was crew chief by Larry McReynolds, by the way, to grab the checkered flag. We're gonna run 14th or 15th and just, you know, we're just there. Didn't really feel like we had the car to make aggressive moves and make our way up there, but yeah, those guys kind of just, I don't really know. I gotta go back and watch. I don't know how I got up there, but all of a sudden we were fourth and then the 7, he ran out of fuel or something and got the jump. I gotta go back and watch it, but just super, super thankful for Luke Lambert and the rest of the guys. They did a great job with pit stops and getting enough fuel in it and seemed to let it kind of came down to, so I was really nervous there at the end with just watching the fuel pressure gauge the whole last lap and we had plenty of fuel on it. So just ended up working out and just never quit.
