The ending didn’t go quite as Stewart-Haas Racing had planned but the result was just as important.

Aric Almirola, in his first season at SHR, took the lead on the final lap of Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway when his teammate and race leader Kurt Busch ran out of fuel and hung on for his first victory of the season.

The win could not be more timely for Almirola, who is locked into the third round of the playoffs regardless of his performance next weekend at Kansas Speedway.

It’s Almirola’s second career win. He came within a lap of winning the season-opening Daytona 500 but was spun out by Austin Dillon.

Clint Bowyer finished second, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. third, Denny Hamlin fourth and Joey Logano completed the top-five.

Until the overtime, Kurt Busch was leading his three SHR teammates – Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer and Almirola – into a finish that would have been decided among themselves.

Hurray! I got back in synch with NASCAR just in time for the play offs! A couple of months ago, I switched service providers, going from cable to satellite. I think I only saw two races for the duration. Every week it seemed, there was some kind of…Continue
