NASCAR: Kyle Busch's 'lucky' triumph tops exciting Talladega finish

Kyle Busch won a superspeedway points race Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway after 15 years without a win.

Busch got a shove from Brad Keselowski to pass Bubba Wallace on the final lap as Wallace fought to hold off Ryan Blaney. Superspeedway races require luck and skill.

Wallace blocked Blaney three times and crashed into the wall, bringing out the caution and giving Busch his second win of the year. Wallace blamed the crash.

Wallace, whose closest pal Blaney drives the No. 12, added, "Not the 12’s fault at all."

Takeaways from Talladega, where Blaney led a race-high 47 laps and finished second, followed by Chris Buescher, Chase Briscoe, and Brad Keselowski.

Busch entered Victory Lane perhaps feeling lucky but knowing he worked hard to improve in superspeedway racing. He had won 55 times since his 2008 Talladega triumph.

Busch started working with a new spotter, Derek Kneeland, with Richard Childress Racing this year. The spotter tells the driver where other cars are in relation to his car. Superspeedway racing needs spotters.
