With as many as five Fords in the top 10 during the final stages of the Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway it was only fitting thata Fusion ended up in Victory Lane. Brad Keselowski piloted his Penske Racing Ford to the win as the checkered and yellow flags flew simultaneously. Keselowski showed the ability to stay out front once he gained the lead and successfully blocked all challenges over the last 2 circuits around NASCAR’s biggest track. As Keselowski crossed the finish several cars wrecked behind him, over the course of the afternoon 33 of the 40 starters were involved in incidents resulting in damage to their race cars.The Fords of Keselowski, Joey Logano and Trevor Bayne ran 1-2-3 for several lapsduring the final 30 laps until accidents and cautions scrambled the field for the final four lap sprint to the checkered flag. Ryan Blaney in the Woods Brother’s Ford finished 9th,Bayne driving for Roush-Fenway Racing was 10th, and the 38 of Landon Cassill claimed 11th in the Front Row Motorsports Fusion.Blaney’s strong performance combined with the carnage that left many strong contenders with wrecked cars pushed him into playoff contention at 16th in the season long standings. Keselowski’s second win of the year virtually assures him of a playoff spot and Logano continues to post consistent finishes keeping him well positioned in the top 10 spots for the Chase.The series travels to Kansas Speedway for a Saturday night battle under the lights in the Go Bowling 400. The Ford teams will look to build on their success at Talladega and keep the momentum going forward.
