Stenhouse scores 1st career Cup victory with last-lap pass

McMurray finished second, with Busch in third, Almirola finished in fourth, with Kasey Kahne in fifth. Called our security [and] the security guy said, "Take him to Victory Lane". "But, knowing what I know now when we come down pit road and they saw the tire, I'm glad I did because it wouldn't have made it another lap or two".

“We plan to keep getting better and continue to bring better race cars to the track and go out there and lay it all on the line like we do every week.

Ricky Stenhouse Jr. hugs his dad, Ricky Stenhouse Sr., in Victory Lane after winning the GEICO 500.

"This is the closest race track to my hometown (Stenhouse is a MS native), and man, the fans were out here this weekend". He wheeled the No. 98 auto to Victory Lane in the Xfinity Series for Richard Petty Motorsports then avoided carnage on Sunday to come away with his second fourth-place finish of the season and first since the Daytona 500. "Pulling into Victory Lane and seeing Jack and Danica standing there together, they're the same height (laughter), it was super special".

"I don't mind being known as her boyfriend", Stenhouse said. It's a title that has visibly irritated him when asked about it by the press, but one he feels will not be the main way people view his Jack Roush Racing team moving forward.

On the final restart of the race, Kyle Busch led the field to green but Ricky Stenhouse Jr., with a little help from Jimmie Johnson earned the first win of his career in a thrilling fashion.

If you missed any of the GEICO 500 on Sunday, you can view the complete results from the race here. Although Busch did lead lap after lap after lap, it was apparent that Stenhouse, who sat on the pole, had a stronger vehicle. Things did not look good for Busch at various stages of the race.

"I've felt like the way our cars have performed and the way they've driven, I've felt like we could get something in victory lane before the season was up". All drivers involved walked away uninjured.

Germany wants more guarantees from China over 'Silk Road' trade plan
While Xi did not mention North Korea during his speech to the delegates, it was discussed during a bilateral meeting with Putin. Prior to Chavez's 1999 election, trade between both nations was less than US$500 million annually, Venezuela Analysis reported.


Stenhouse started from the pole and led 13 laps - the first time he'd led laps all season. The large wreck prompted NASCAR to throw the red flag to allow for clean-up, though everybody ended up being OK. Junior's crew-chief, Greg Ives, said afterward that only one lug-nut was tight on the entire wheel. After initially going a lap down, he received the "lucky dog" award for being the first auto a lap down following the caution that come out after "the Big One".

Earnhardt has five finishes of 30th or worse this season.

Speaking of Dale Jr., he taught us our Important NASCAR Safety Lesson of the Week: always make sure your wheels are properly tightened.

"I thought they were a little delayed, but I needed a minute to catch my breath, so it all kind of timed out perfectly", he said.

Jamie McMurray is a dark horse I like today. I got a lot of cheers riding around here today and the fans were awesome.

But that was the reality before Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway, when a nifty pass of Kyle Busch on the white flag lap sent Stenhouse surging into a lead he wouldn't relinquish.

Hamlin claimed his first stage win of the season in the second stage of Sunday's race.
