Kasey Kahne needed to stretch his fuel mileage and get a great restart if he wanted to win the Brickyard 400. He accomplished one of those feats by getting to the checkers in sixth, but he failed to hold off a determined Jeff Gordon on a restart with 16 laps remaining.

With his strong finish, Kahne gained two positions in the standings. He currently sits 15th in the points, but is not currently in Chase contention. He needs to make up for points on Austin Dillon or win a race. Next week the series returns to the site of his most recent win; Kahne won last year’s GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono and should run well again this season. Fantasy owners should note, however, this was Kahne’s first top-10 on a flat track in 2014.

Kurt Busch enters the GoBowling.com 400 with a current streak of 10 consecutive top-10s on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. This streak was started at Kansas Speedway last spring and Busch has an average finish of 7.1 in that span of races.

Expand the parameters a little and Busch has only one result worse than 14th in his last 17 attempts on this course type. That represents nearly his entire career with Stewart-Haas Racing.

Austin Dillon entered Texas Motor Speedway this April with four consecutive top-15 results on similarly-configured, 1.5-mile tracks. He sustained crash damage and finished 19th in the Duck Commander 500—two laps off the pace.

Dillon’s strong finish last week in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway will help regain some of the momentum he has lost in recent weeks and unless something unforeseen happens, he should be one of this week’s favorites to finish in the top 15 once again.

Daniel Suarez (#19 ARRIS Toyota Camry) finished seventh in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Sparks Energy 300 at Alabama's Talladega Superspeedway.

He started second on the grid and completed all laps of the 116-lap race (led two laps). Suarez, who was the series leader heading into this race, drops to second in the 2016 NXS championship standings after this event. Both Suarez and Elliott Sadler (winner of this race) have 314 points but the tie breaker is wins (Suarez is winless).

Justin Allgaier (#7 Breyers Chevrolet Camaro) finished second in Saturday's NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) Sparks Energy 300 at Alabama's Talladega Superspeedway.

He started 18th on the grid and completed all laps of the 116-lap race. Allgaier, who has competed in all nine series races so far this season, advanced three spots to fourth in the 2016 NXS championship standings after this event.

Chase Briscoe (#77 Cunningham Motorsports Dodge) finished third in Friday's ARCA Racing Series General Tire 200 at Talladega (AL) Superspeedway.

He started 20th in the lineup and completed all laps of the 74-lap race. John Wes Townley, points leader heading into this race and driving a partial ARCA schedule, did not enter this event. Briscoe passes him in the series points to become the leader in the 2016 ARCA championship standings. He leads Josh Williams (who finished second in the race) by 15 points after this event.

Josh Williams (#6 Musselman's Big Cup Applesauce Ford) finished second in Friday's ARCA Racing Series rain-shortened General Tire 200 at Talladega (AL) Superspeedway.

He started 14th on the grid and completed all laps of the 74-lap event. Williams, who competed in all four series races so far this season, advanced to second in the 2016 ARCA championship standings, 15 points behind leader Chase Briscoe.

Tom Hessert turned in another Talladega gem only to settle for a fourth place finish during Friday’s ARCA Racing Series presented by Menard General Tire 200 at Talladega Superspeedway.

Hessert (#25 RelaxWraps.com - Cometic Toyota), started on the pole, led a race high 23-laps, but came up short during one of the most exciting ARCA restrictor plate races in recent memory. Continuing a trend as a force to be reckoned with at restrictor plate races, Hessert, who won Talladega in 2014, ran out of fuel leading the race last year on the final lap, only makes the case stronger as a pre-race favorite when the series returns in 2017.-Venturini Motorsports

Carl Edwards had been running on the lead lap for 28 consecutive races entering the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway. He sustained damage in two separate incidents on the restrictor-plate, superspeedway and not only failed to finish on the lead lap, he was not running at the end of the race.

Edwards was credited with a 35th-place finish after completing 109 laps. That was an ignominious end for the winner of the last two races this season, but he will dust off and head to Kansas Speedway with the rest of the field.

Joey Logano wrecked hard on the final lap of Saturday’s XFINITY race and he crashed hard again in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway on lap 182 of 188. He failed to finish the race and was credited with a 25th-place result.

His failure to finish was significant because it was the first time in 62 races that he was not running at the end of a Cup race. The last time he failed to finish was at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in July 2014. That DNF was also caused by an accident.

David Gilliland was running fifth when he took the white flag in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but he got shuffled out of the draft on that final lap and finished 17th.

After starting 39th, however, he still managed to earn a lot of points for his fantasy owners with the place-differential. He will see this as one that got away, but with a lead lap finish in a race that featured 10 caution flags—mostly for major incidents—his fantasy owners should be proud of his accomplishment.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. brought out the first caution of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway when he spun without contact on lap 51. The same thing happened to him at Daytona International Speedway this February, which makes this his second unforced error in as many restrictor-plate, superspeedway races.

Last year Earnhardt swept the top-three positions in four races on the plate tracks. Now with back-to-back sub-35th-place results, his value in the upcoming Coke Zero 400 will be brought into question.
