NASCAR At Talladega Superspeedway Results: Clint Bowyer Wins With Last-Second Pass

Crashes, white-knuckle racing and a close finish made for another excellent race at Talladega, with Clint Bowyer earning his first win of the year thanks to a bit of teamwork and a slingshot at the end. As the field bunch up late in the race, the restarts came often, but Bowyer was able to take it by a hair on the green-white-checkered.

With 14 laps to go, Bobby Labonte went around and slammed hard after losing control in a turn. As Labonte spun, Kurt Busch slammed into his car in a violent collision.. Both cars sustained significant damage, though Labonte's looked like it got the worst of it. Busch took his car straight to the garage after the incident.

Just after the restart, with seven laps to go, Regan Smith was caught up in another violent crash as the field jockeyed for position heading down to the wire. Mark Martin and Denny Hamlin were also involved, but Smith clearly took the brunt of the damage. Thankfully, Smith walked away from the wreck.

After the restart, Clint Bowyer and Jeff Burton burst away from the field in the two-car draft. Bowyer swung out from behind Burton and just barely edged him at the line.
