Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway, six full-time Cup drivers ran the Sparks 300 Xfinity Series race, and while winning is always the primary objective, for some, it's not the only thing on the agenda. "It means so much they let me run this thing seven or eight times a year, and I have so much fun, especially at the speedway races like Talladega".

With the Ford of Darrell Wallace Jr. plowing into the inside backstretch wall behind him on the final lap, Almirola held the top spot to the finish, beating Sadler, the series leader, to the finish line by.142 seconds. "Our Ford Mustang was super-fast today".

Balch Springs police said Tuesday evening that the district attorney's office will decide whether Oliver will be charged.

Sadler was second, followed by Logano. He's struggled out of the gate this season, but following back-to-back top-10 finishes, Hamlin looks like he's turned a corner. He now leads the XFINITY Series point standings by 29 points over Justin Allgaier. "I love racing here at Talladega in these XFINITY cars", Logano said. Matt Tifft, Michael Annett, Justin Allgaier, Daniel Suarez and Jeff Green completed the top 10. "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".

The Big One on the Blvd has quickly become a popular tradition on race weekends at Talladega, with fans gathering for a Mardi Gras-style parade featuring NASCAR drivers that leads to an area where fans then participate in a variety of messy games which are judged by the drivers. Selfishly, I wish the caution came out, but for the fans I'm glad that it didn't.
