KESELOWSKI WINS A THRILLER AT TALLADEGA

Brad Keselowski won his first Sprint Cup race after spinning out leader Carl Edwards on the final lap at Talladega on Sunday, sending Edwards airborne into the catch fence, not unlike the Bobby Allison crash in 1987.

In a move reminiscent of Ricky Bobby, Edwards crossed the finish line on foot. He appeared to be OK after the race.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. took second place.

The race, easily the most exciting of the year, featured two massive multi-car crashes and dozens of lead changes. There was even contact on the victory lap, with Kyle Busch spinning out Keselowski.
