Kurt Busch: Kurt Busch gets 7th top-10 in 8 plate races

It took extra time at Talladega on Sunday, but Ricky Stenhouse Jr. crossed the checkered line first at the Geico 500, his first ever victory in the Cup series in 158 starts. The organization, now named "Roush Fenway Racing" after half the company was purchased by Boston Red Sox ownership, has won 136 races at the sport's highest level, but none since 2014, until Stenhouse and his team took advantage of Talladega's unpredictable nature.

Now Stenhouse is a Monster Energy Cup Series victor, and it was his famous girlfriend who was there to greet him Sunday when he pulled into victory lane at Talladega Superspeedway. "I've been in holes before, and I've climbed out of all of them", Roush said in Victory Lane, totally unaffected by the celebration around him. Although Busch did lead lap after lap after lap, it was apparent that Stenhouse, who sat on the pole, had a stronger auto. Glad to see Jack smiling here in victory lane, know he's been wanting this for a long time. And for good measure, he's added two victories in five NASCAR XFINITY Series starts, with an average finish of 2.8. "So it's disappointing. I was having a hard time figuring out what I needed to do or what we were missing there for most of the race".

It's been a long journey for Ricky Stenhouse Jr.to make his way to victory lane. Then he used that speed to snatch the race away with a last-lap pass of Busch.

It started when Allmendinger tapped Elliott to spin him around and force the latter onto the wall.

The nose of Allmendinger's vehicle launched Elliott's into the air, and his auto landed on the hood of Joey Logano's Ford.

He then held off Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari's championship leader, in the closing laps to cross the line with a 0.6-second advantage.

Chase Elliott and A.J. Allmendinger were battling for second place when Allmendinger got into the left side of Elliott's bumper. "Our race team does a great job with safety". Larson didn't lead any laps Sunday.

Talladega, Ala. - Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s farewell tour has officially started.

"He wants to go through the tunnel (under the track) and get in here". With only 14 laps remaining in the race, Earnhardt had to make a pit-stop to fix the issue.

But no one had enough to catch leader Busch as the field was setting itself up for a frantic dash to the finish.

NASCAR was there to celebrate with the couple, Stenhouse the latest new face to win in a series undergoing a serious changing of the guard.

Stunned by his new-found fame, Wilkerson told The New York Times he had simply wanted to beat his own record of a dozen retweets. According to the website , all proceeds from the merchandise sales will be donated to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption .

Jamie McMurray finished second, Busch was third, Aric Almirola was fourth, and Kasey Kahne rounded out the top five.

McMurray finished second in a Chevrolet and was followed by Busch in a Toyota, then Aric Almirola, another Ford driver and victor of the Xfinity Series race Saturday. Stage One victor Brad Keselowski was seventh, while Stage Two victory Denny Hamlin was 11th. Stenhouse turned a lap at 191.547 miles per hour to put the Roush Fenway Ford on the pole. Joey Logano, Paul Menard, Kevin Harvick, Austin Dillon, Martin Truex Jr., Matt DiBenedetto, Keselowski, Matt Kenseth, Danica Patrick, David Ragan, Trevor Bayne, Michael McDowell, Erik Jones, Cole Whitt and Brendan Gaughan were all involved in the wreck to some extent.

STAGE TWO: Denny Hamlin won the second stage, leading 39 of the 55 laps in the segment. Haley, who drives for GMS Racing in trucks, missed the first two races of the season because he was under 18.

Nonetheless, he approached 2017 with a fresh and optimistic mind-set, which has been rewarded as the series shifts Saturday evening to Kansas Speedway - historically, one of Stenhouse's best tracks - for the Go Bowling 400.
