Photo finish!

Talladega SuperSpeedway.

2.66 mile tri-oval track.

Restricter plates keep speeds to about 200 mph max.

A 500 mile race of 188 laps.

Race cannot end under a yellow flag therefore requiring a Green-White-Checker flag finish if a caution is called before the white flag. Three Green-White-Checker re-starts resulted in a total of 200 laps.

29 leaders
88 lead changes

And what a finish!!!
Kevin Harvick passed Jamie McMurray on the last lap and won by .012 seconds!!!
