Keselowski’s victory was the sixth at Talladega with his name being inscribed next to that of Dale Earnhardt Jr y Jeff Gordon as the second best winners in this oval in all of history.

“I never would have dreamed that I would tie Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr. here. That’s something because they are legends.”
