Brad Keselowski won the Nascar Cup race at Talladega Sunday. He joins MartinTruex, Jr. in the quarterfinal round of the playoff format which begins in two weeks. There were 14 cars running at the conclusion of the restrictor-plate race, and only four of the Chase drivers were among the cars running. The race had to be red-flagged three times because of crashes. Ryan Newman was the runner-up, followed by Trevor Bayne. Joey Logano, who led a race-high 59 laps, was fourth.
