After a wild race at Talladega Superspeedway, it was Jamie McMurray and the No. 1 car who won the 2013 Camping World RV Sales 500 under a yellow-flag finish.

While McMurray won the race, Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 car took the lead of the Sprint Cup Championship standings over Matt Kenseth by four points with just four races left in the season.   

After the race, Kenseth spoke about his day and the loss of the points lead (via ESPN):

Dale Earnhardt Jr. was able to steal a second-place finish away from Paul Menard, who finished third. Kyle Busch managed a fourth-place finish and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. rounded out the top five.

Unexpected pole winner Aric Almirola (he took the honor after qualifying was rained out) brought the field to the green flag for the start of the race but didn’t stay in the lead for very long. With the field constantly shifting and cycling through, Almirola was quickly passed and Kenseth took the lead.

The race remained clean for most of the first 100 laps, and the field went through several green-flag pit stops. Other than a caution flag that was waived for a two-car wreck early in the event (Juan Pablo Montoya and Marcos Ambrose were involved in a crash), the race was uncharacteristically quiet.

The majority of Sunday’s lead changes came on pit road.

While Kenseth led several laps during the course of the day, it was Earnhardt Jr. who was in first place as the field passed the 30 laps to go mark. Johnson also managed to lead laps early in the race, and Busch was able to take the lead for a stretch in the waning stages of the event.

The event remained clean until Austin Dillon was turned on the last lap and brought out the caution with the white flag flying, ending the race. That gave McMurray—who had taken the lead with just a few laps left—the hard-fought victory.
