    TALLADEGA, Ala.—It was another wild finish for Talladega Speedway fans as Kyle Busch came from a lap down to win Sunday’s Sprint Cup Aaron’s 499, after a major last-lap wreck caused the race to end under caution.

    “First, Jeff (Gordon) and Juan (Montoya) helped push me,” Busch said. “We didn’t have as much power as the 20-car (Tony Stewart), but it was enough. I think this is the first time I’ve finished here without tearing up all the equipment.”

  • This NASCAR question is as reliable as paying taxes and the sun rising in east
