David Ragan Takes Talladega By Night

When the green flag fell at 12:09 Central time this early afternoon, David Ragan had 100 to 1 odds to take the checkered flag at Talladega Superspeedway. Seven hours later, he defeated those odds.

In a very fitting David and Goliath story, both David Ragan and David Gilliland took the heavy-hitters by storm on the final lap, overtaking favorites like Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, and Jimmie Johnson.

The Aaron’s 499 was actually 511 miles, with an elapsed seven hour timeframe due to light thunderstorms moving in and out of the Talladega Superspeedway area all afternoon.

Multiple cautions occurred on the actual track, with the most devastating being Kurt Busch ┬ácatching air and flipping onto Ryan Newman’s Haas Racing Chevy.

The NASCAR boys will toil and try to tame the “Lady in Black” next Saturday in Darlington, South Carolina.
