Kenseth Escapes the “Big One” and Wins at Talladega

Published: Monday, October 8, 2012 at 11:17 AM.



Matt Kenseth escaped the “Big One’ for the win as Tony Stewart flipped down the track. As Smoke flipped he took with him all of the chase contenders except Kenseth who won and Jeff Gordon. The contenders that were involved some of the finished most of them didn’t, but here they are anyway, Tony Stewart, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Brad Keselowski, Denny Hamlin, Kasey Kahne, Clint Bowyer, Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, and Greg Biffle. Of those drivers involved Keselowski, and Biffle were the only two to cross the finish line. For anyone who knows me, you know I am a huge Stewart fan and stand behind him 100 precent. So it should come as no surprise to you when I say, that as he came out of the infield medical center and admitted that the accident was his fault I liked to have passed out.

On to something else. Kurt Busch took his last ride with the Phoenix team. He will race in charlotte next weekend in the number 78, with Furniture Row Racing, taking the place of Regan Smith. Smith will be racing the number 51 for Phoenix in Charlotte. So far this is a one race deal for Smith.

Bass Pro Shops has announced that they will be sponsoring 18 races on Tony Stewart’s number 14.
