Even though we had to wait until Monday for the GEICO 500 at Talladega, the drivers of the NASCAR Cup Series have made the race worth the wait, putting on a incredible show.
After a weather delay ended stage one with Tyler Reddick out front, collecting his first NASCAR Cup Series stage win, Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. edged out Ryan Blaney in a photo finish to take the win in stage two.
Ryan Blaney, Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Christopher Bell, Joey Logano, Bubba Wallace, Cole Custer, Chris Buescher and William Byron rounded out the top-ten in stage two, all earning stage points.
Only two cautions came out during the stage, one for a spin off turn four by John Hunter Nemechek, as well as a caution for debris, triggering a two lap dash for the stage win.
