(AP) Jamie McMurray won at Talladega Superspeedway in a nearly clean race until rookie Austin Dillon lost control on the final lap Sunday, allowing the winner to coast across the line under caution.


McMurray won for the first time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series since 2010, not having to worry about a charge from Dale Earnhardt Jr. because Dillon spun coming out of the second turn. The only other driver collected in the crash was Casey Mears, who slammed into Dillon's car and sent it flying into the air before it came back down upright.


A race known for massive crashes was essentially trouble free. There was a minor wreck early on involving Marcos Ambrose and Pablo Montoya, and 103 consecutive laps under green until the yellow and checkered flag waved together at the end.
