TALLADEGA, Ala. - Enter the interloper.

In a race dominated early by Matt Kenseth and later by fellow title contenders Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jamie McMurray got to the front at the right time, led the last 15 laps and grabbed victory in Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.

McMurray was out front, leading Earnhardt in the sixth Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup race of the season, when a slight tap from Ricky Stenhouse Jr.'s Ford sent Austin Dillon's Chevrolet spinning into the outside wall on the backstretch.

Impact from Casey Mears' Ford launched Dillon's car into the air and severely damaged both machines.

CONCORD, N.C. —Brad Keselowski proved once again Saturday night that quality and timing trump quantity. Keselowski led 11 laps in Saturday night’s Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kasey Kahne led 138. Fivetime champion Jimmie Johnson led 130.

But Keselowski overcame a loose wheel and a jack that spent a lap under the side of his car to win the fifth race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, as a late caution squelched Johnson’s march toward the series lead.

Keselowski, the reigning series champion, won for the first time this season, the first time at Charlotte and the 10th time in his career. On four fresh tires to Kasey Kahne’s two after a restart on Lap 312, Keselowski passed for the top spot on Lap 326 of 334.
