Matt Kenseth escaped a massive pileup in Turn 4 on Lap 189 of Sunday’s Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 at Talladega Superspeedway to win the fourth race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Jeff Gordon also dodged the 25 car crash that was triggered by contact between Tony Stewart’s Chevrolet and Michael Waltrip’s Toyota and ran second, followed by Kyle Busch, David Ragan and Regan Smith.

Brad Keselowski finished seventh and extended his championship lead to 14 points over Jimmie Johnson, whose Chevrolet was heavily damaged in the wreck and limped home in 17th. Stewart took full responsibility for the melee that scrambled the order of finish.

Gordon wasn’t surprised at the last-lap chaos. He was surprised it didn’t happen earlier.

The next race is Saturday night at Charlotte. The battle resumes in ‘The Chase For The Championship Standings’.
