Well, that was fun, wasn't it?
We sat through more than three hours of rain delays before resuming Sprint Cup action at Talladega. Those who stayed at the track had to weather heavy rain and even hail, while folks watching at home sat through hours of filler programming (and perhaps even a segment of the local news).
And most who persevered got exactly what they were waiting for.
Sure, there were still major accidents that ruined a few people's days, but the final laps still came down to a hard-fought, clean battle. When all was said and done, gutsy Front Row Motorsports teammates David Ragan and David Gilliland got by all of the heavyweights, including Carl Edwards, Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth, to score the team's first-ever 1-2 finish.
So who else had good days and bad days at the sport's biggest wild-card track?
