David Ragan Steals Last-Lap Victory At Talladega

Tools

By Alabama News Network

David Ragan used a sweeping last-lap pass in overtime to pull a huge upset victory Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.
   
He got a push from teammate David Gilliland to slide past Carl Edwards to the front and he and Gilliland held on for a 1-2 finish for Front Row Motorsports.
   
It came at the end of a race that took seven hours to complete after rain stopped it for 3 hours, 36 minutes midway through the event. With darkness quickly closing in, contact between Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and J.J. Yeley triggered a frightening crash that sent Kurt Busch's car airborne and on top of Ryan Newman's car.
   
NASCAR sent the race into overtime for one attempt at a green-white-checkered finish, and the two Front Row drivers teamed up to steal the win.
