I'm really torn here.  My gut has been screaming Keselowski all week, but now I'm feeling like the Earnhardt magic is back...

I've gotta trust my gut. Brad K

I honestly didn't see your Brad K pick, Ken, until after I put mine up.  I was thinking of going with Kyle Busch all week and then I decided I wanted to save him for an upcoming race.  I'm actually pulling for Dale Jr.  but nothing good ever happens on the racetrack and in our house, (just pouting actually) when Mr. blues and I pick the same driver.

Sorry to post so late, I have some kind of virus and was actually napping when my husband poked me and said "Wake up!  Talladega starts at 2!"  :lol:  :lol:

Geez, Logano.  Looked like a deliberate bump, I dunno. I know it happens, especially at Talladega, but by the end of the season these multiple restarts and green, white checker endings get so old.

What were Suarez' spotters telling him? There's only 11 cars left in this Thunderdome, how hard is it to watch them? Dale Jr. may end up winning due to everyone else being wrecked. Terrible for Chase Elliott to go out that way.

Two laps to go, Jr. gets a run started and Logano cuts him off. Nice finish by Keselowski, though.

NASCAR needs to either stop running at those tracks or, better idea, get rid of the restrictor plates. Supposedly it's for driver safety, but it comes at the expense of much bigger wrecks and it probably isn't that much safer anyway.

I feel like Jr missed any opportunity at the end to hook up with keselowski, push him to the lead, and settle it between them.

Great run by Brad though, I hope he can roll this into some playoff momentum.

I hear ya, but I think it's more for fan safety.  Cars launching into the catch fence would be a big problem.  Like in years past...

Brad is a smart and ballsy driver.  Kyle Larson does a hell of a job wheeling a car...

I ws hoping to see that also.  I was a little surprised that the 88 didn't go for it harder.

Jr. seems to have lost any aggressiveness he had.  Today was his opportunity to grab it and he didn't go for it...

That pretty much takes me out of it.

Sad that a race can end with only 12 cars running.

What a mess.

You only need to pick up 11 points per race to catch the lead... and if blueschika has one really bad finish, the whole field could be closed up in one fell swoop. It's still very much a four horse race.
