Stewart, Dillon team up for 6th at 'Dega 05-01-2016
Ty Dillon
Officially Tony Stewart finished sixth after starting 14th in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but Ty Dillon ran all of the practice, qualified the car, and ran most of the race. Stewart will be credited with the finish in the points and all fantasy games, however, since he started the No. 14 Chevrolet. Notably, the only mistake made by this team all afternoon was by Stewart in the pits. He was too fast exiting during a green flag stop, which cost the No. 14 a lap to the leaders. He was given the Free Pass on the first caution of the day, made the driver change to Dillon, and allowed the part time driver plenty of time to make up for lost time.
83 percent of 'Dega field dinged 05-01-2016
Michael Annett
When Dale Earnhardt Jr. spun into Kasey Kahne and Michael Annett, he was the first driver to wreck, but was far from the last. By the end of the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, 82.5 percent of the field had been impacted by crash damage. This was one of the most chaotic races at Talladega fantasy owners have seen in quite some while. Winning one's league this week required a lot of luck.
Bayne contends for win, finishes 10th at Dega 05-01-2016
Trevor Bayne
Trevor Bayne was in a position to win the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway in the closing laps, but he got shuffled from the draft and finished 10th. He led 22 laps near the end of the show, however, and banked some points for his fantasy players. More importantly, this is his second top-10 in the last three races and his worst result in the past four was a 17th at Richmond. That makes him fantasy relevant heading to a track type that was once very kind to Roush-Fenway Racing.
Kurt Busch gets fourth straight 'Dega top-12 05-01-2016
Kurt Busch
Kurt Busch has finished 12th or better in his last four Talladega SuperSpeedway races. This week he was eighth after starting the Geico 500 18th. While Busch has been a good value, he has rarely been a great one. It has now been 19 races (or a decade) since he last finished among the top five on this track. Busch is still seeking his first restrictor-plate, superspeedway win.
Clint Bowyer earns another top-10 with 7th 05-01-2016
Clint Bowyer
Clint Bowyer finished seventh in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway after starting 34th. This is his fifth top-10 finish in his last six starts on this track. Notably, it is also his second top-10 of the season after finishing eighth at Bristol Motor Speedway. It is too soon to form a bandwagon for the driver and team, but momentum has been gained with less success.

After 4 disappoints, McMurray 4th at 'Dega 05-01-2016
Jamie McMurray
Jamie McMurray won the fall 2013 race at Talladega SuperSpeedway and then finished outside the top 10 in his next four races. Three of these disappointments were outside the top 25, but he rebounded in the Geico 500 to finish fourth. McMurray was at the eye of several storms, but he survived with minimal damage. At Talladega driver have to be both lucky and good.
Austin Dillon overcomes 'Dega crash for a 3rd 05-01-2016
Austin Dillon
Austin Dillon was one of 33 drivers impacted by some form of crash damage in the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway, but after getting a Free Pass, he drafted to third on the final lap and finished there. He lost one place-differential point after starting on the outside of the front row. This was Dillon's first top-10 at Talladega, but he was still considered a favorite because he has three top-15s in the previous six attempts.

Brad Keselowski survives chaos, wins 'Dega 05-01-2016
Brad Keselowski
In a race that was marred by several "Big One" crashes-including one that impacted more than half the field-Brad Keselowski was leading the Geico 500 at Talladega SuperSpeedway when the final caution waved on the white flag lap. Keselowski had a huge lead when the final accident froze the field so he was heading to Victory Lane either way. This is his fourth win on this track and his second in the past four races. He also won in fall 2014.
