TALLADEGA, Ala. – Elliott Sadler was declared winner of the Xfinity Series race Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway after a NASCAR review to determine who was out front when a caution froze the field in overtime.
Sadler was chasing leader Joey Logano on the final lap when Logano tried to block Sadler's attempt at a pass for the victory. Logano went high for a block, then low, but Sadler spun him during the rapid lane changing. Logano's car turned into the wall and created a crash that brought out the yellow flag.
Brennan Poole crossed the finish line first, and thought he'd earned his first career Xfinity Series race.
But he and Sadler both drove their cars to the flagstand and patiently waited through a NASCAR review that took more than five minutes.
NASCAR ruled Sadler was the leader when the race officially ended. Poole dropped to third.
