NASCAR Heads to Talladega Superspeedway

Kyle Larson made a late two-tire pit stop pay off and held off Joey Logano to win at Martinsville, his second victory in three races as the Cup Series heads to Talladega Superspeedway Sunday.


Larson and Hendrick Motorsports teammate William Byron are the only multiple race winners through nine events. Larson led the last 29 laps. 


Logano started at the back of the field after a post-qualifying adjustment to his car and rallied from going a lap down twice in the race. 


Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin finished third and fourth, their first top-five finishes of the season. 


Chase Elliott returned after missing six races because of surgery to repair a broken tibia sustained while snowboarding.


Race time is 2 pm Sunday afternoon.


John Hunter Nemechek led 198 of the 250 laps at Martinsville to record his second victory of the season and his fourth in the series as the XFinity Series also heads to Talladega Superspeedway Saturday. 


Nemechek's Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Sammy Smith finished second, followed by Cole Custer, Josh Berry and Brandon Jones. 


There have been 12 different winners in the last 12 Xfinity Series races at Martinsville. 


Nemechek and Berry share the series lead with seven top-10 finishes. Nemechek also took over the series points lead by 21 over three-time winner Austin Hill.


Race time is 3 pm Saturday afternoon.


The Craftsman Truck Series returns Saturday, May 6 at Kansas Speedway.
