Aric Almirola wins Xfinity Series race at Talladega

Almirola scored his third career win in the series Saturday when he crossed the finish line free and clear in the Sparks Energy 300 at Talladega Superspeedway. Allgaier gave up the lead to Logano on a Logano crossover move, but Almirola got by him. And many say a race at Daytona and Talladega can be both mentally and physically exhausting.

Aric Almirola pulls himself out of his vehicle in Victory Lane after winning the Sparks Energy 300 Xfinity race at Talladega Saturday. "Doug Yates (of Roush Yates Engines) brings some awesome horsepower, and our Ford Mustang was super-fast". We're not sure NASCAR's rookie drivers are quite ready for this type of race, so we're looking at more experienced value plays. This thing is fast'. Almirola took the lead with four laps to go.

The result was a seven-car collision that eliminated polesitter Blake Koch and Brendan Gaughan, among others.

(Blaney) "Back in the day when Kurt probably got started, you know, there wasn't many people involved in the team and the engineering side wasn't as big and the driver knew more about the vehicle and what's under the hood. I feel like there are some really good race tracks that we can definitely capitalize on".

Vally said Zuma must give "the record of all documents and electronic records...that relate to the making of the decisions". The DA said it wanted the court to review and set aside Zuma's decision to dismiss Gordhan and Jonas.

Logano was third, followed by Ben Kennedy in fourth, then Erik Jones, Matt Tifft and Michael Annett. In fact, Sadler felt his team's need to work no his No. 1 JR Motorsports Chevrolet kept him out of harm's way with respect to the later wrecks. He now leads the XFINITY Series point standings by 29 points over Justin Allgaier.

"It was a blast out there-we had a great vehicle", Kennedy said of the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet. "We only do this (type of racing) four times a year, so it's hard to be really good at it, or at least it's hard for me".

No cautions, no driver change, no asterisk. Allgaier was out front for a race-high 24 laps. Almirola led 13 circuits.
