In one of the most memorable race days in Talladega Superspeedway history, Ryan Blaney drove his No. 12 Ford Mustang for Team Penske past the field with a last-lap pass and spectacular finish, bumping fenders with Erik Jones and holding off Ricky Stenhouse Jr. by inches to win the GEICO 500 NASCAR Cup Series race. Blaney captured the checkered flag by only .007 seconds over Stenhouse.
