Tony Stewart hired Aric Almirola because he believed the journeyman would win races for Stewart-Haas Racing.
Almirola's win earned him an automatic berth into the third round of the playoffs.
"All four guys in the top 12 is a strong showing for us", Byron said.
"I've been so close so many times this year", Almirola told NBCS after the race. "Why do we have an extra yellow flag lap is beyond me". Busch, who led 108 laps, was in the lead, but then he ran out of fuel on the final lap.
Almirola almost won the season-opening Daytona 500 but was wrecked while leading on the final lap. What an impressive run by Stewart-Haas Racing.
Three takeaways from the Red Sox’s Game 2 ALCS win
By that time, Bradley was standing on second base and the Red Sox had a 5-4 lead, as all three baserunners scored. He then allowed a double to George Springer and a single to Jose Altuve, which cut the Astros deficit to two.
Clint Bowyer placed second while Ricky Stenhouse Jr. finished in third.
"The four of us (SHR drivers) were so committed to each other and so organized, the field couldn't touch us". Stage two went to Kevin Harvick.
The boss made sure to keep Almirola's spirits high every chance he got, including a pre-race pep talk Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.
Ben Rhodes and Stewart Friesen entered the weekend on the outside looking in and they left that way, too. We got caught up in the first wreck. Wells directed Richard Petty's final race, Dale Earnhardt Sr.'s final win, Jeff Gordon's four Cup Series championships, and Jimmie Johnson's record-tying seventh Cup Series championship.
Their partnership is the longest active driver and crew chief pairing in current NASCAR, and the most successful of their era. They stayed that way though stages 1 and 2, winning both (Busch the first and Harvick the second). As the laps wound down, Kurt Busch led his three teammates in a straight line and pulled the train away from the pack, which couldn't organize itself behind the SHR group to mount any sort of challenge. The only lap he wasn't credited with leading was during a pit stop under caution.
Giants fined Odell Beckham for interview comments
The Giants recent struggles have largely been pinned on quarterback Eli Manning , who has thrown six touchdowns to four interceptions this season.
For just a second on the restart, it appeared Clint Bowyer might be stuck on the outside and not be able to form up with his teammates, but he managed to find just enough space to dive back inside. That's exactly how the four Fords lined up at the start and they remained in line to the end of the stage.
9th #2 Brad Keselowski 3065 points -18 below the cutoff, has one stage win. He was the lowest finishing playoff driver in the first stage.
Here's the full starting line up for Saturday's Fr8Auctions 250 at Talladega Superspeedway.
Stewart-Haas' driver foursome of pole-sitter Kurt Busch, Kevin Harvick, Bowyer and Almirola started the race in the top four spots.
There are only two drivers in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series who have a winning chance to become a multi-race victor at Talladega this weekend - and they are both playoff drivers.
