Aric Almirola wins Xfinity Series race at Talladega

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway, six full-time Cup drivers ran the Sparks 300 Xfinity Series race, and while winning is always the primary objective, for some, it's not the only thing on the agenda. That's not exactly comforting for teams looking for their first wins, including the likes of Sadler, Wallace, William Byron and Daniel Hemric, but it does mean lots of different cars have a shot at a victory. Almirola took the lead with four laps to go.

Clint Bowyer led the way in the brief practice with a speed of 196.822 miles per hour, followed by Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski, Kurt Busch and Joey Logano.

"I made a huge mistake coming to the white", Sadler said.

"I feel bad about the 16-I got into the back of the 16 and tore up a lot of cars", Almirola said ruefully. "I was trying to help him, trying to make the Fords work together and I hooked him, so I feel sorry about that".

A two-time victor at Talladega in both the Xfinity and Cup Series, Logano has developed into a consistent contender, but he's always looking to learn.

Note: There were 28 lead changes among 14 drivers in a highly competitive race. All have come at restrictor-plate tracks. "You don't have that tandem push as much, and it's more of a pack like the Cup races are, so you get a little bit more experience for what tomorrow is gonna be like, which is good".

(Busch) "I think one thing that's starting to slip through the cracks is the ability for a driver to understand his vehicle and be able to work on it and knowing what it takes to set up the front toe or the rear suspension".

Kennedy was racing for the first time since the 2016 season-ending NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
