Intense Finish At Talladega

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) -- Clint Bowyer beat teammate Jeff Burton to
the finish line at Talladega Superspeedway to give Richard
Childress Racing its 100th victory in the Sprint Cup Series.

As expected, the race heated up at the end as drivers jockeyed
for position. It led to a series of accidents, but none were
serious. The last accident, with eight laps remaining, was a hard
hit by Regan Smith that required repairs to the SAFER barrier.

RCR grabbed the victory roughly 30 minutes after a memorial
service for two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dan Wheldon ended.
Wheldon was killed in the IndyCar season finale a week ago at Las
Vegas.
