Talledega takes toll
Placeholder Image
The playoff drivers were very concerned about having to race in Talladega during the championship run and their concerns were soon realized. There were 11 caution flags, eight of them because of crashes, and three red flags. Of the 12 playoff divers, only four of them finished the race, and only 14 cars took the final green flag at the end of the race.Brad Keselowski survived all the crashes and won the race, his fifth at Talladega.
