Ryan Blaney would use every inch of the race track to win by inches. In the typical fashion of Talladega the racing action is intense at the conclusion with cars all running within inches of each other. Blaney would pick up his first “W” of the year and his second at Talladega after the race was extended into overtime.

“I just kind of blocked, just trying to block the best we could,” Blaney said. “Ride the top, ride the bottom. “We just edged it out, but I’m really proud of this whole Menards/Sylvania Ford Mustang team. It’s been a cool year so far, and I’m really excited to get our first win of the year at a cool place. Thank you everybody for coming… That was a lot of fun.”
