Alfredo Scores Second Win of the Season at Talladega


Anthony Alfredo scored the win in Round Six of the Monday Night Racing Pro Series at Talladega. This was his second win of the season, with his first coming in the season opener at Daytona. It was a wild event that ended in crazy fashion, as expected at almost every single superspeedway event.

“Another win in the Monday Night Racing Pro League, it feels great,” said Alfredo of his second win of the season tonight. “Another win in the Next Gen cars, too, so I’m figuring all of this out I guess.”

Last week at Eldora turned out to be a massive wildcard race, but Talladega is always the true wildcard when it comes to any season, no matter what cars are used. In this case, it was the Next Gen cars, which always produce good racing at these superspeedways.

Most of the race was fairly calm and for iRacing, it was a highly realistically-run race. Most of the field went to single file, right next to the wall just like we see a lot in the NASCAR Cup Series. However, that was just everyone biding their time.

The ending of this race was going to come down to fuel mileage until a late caution caused by Malik Ray and Rajah Caruth changed everything about it.

Adam Cabot and Bailey Turner were the top two the majority of tonight’s event, and they were looking to be well on their way to a victory. On the ensuing restart, we saw what Talladega usually provides us, and that is quality, entertaining racing. Most of the night gave us three and four wide racing, with minimal incidents compared to what the previous superspeedway race at Daytona had.

Multiple green-white-checkered finishes set up a wild final dash. A three-car race to the line between Leighton Sibille, George Balfanz Jr. and Alfredo set up a photo finish. Prevailing in the end was Alfredo, and he took home the huge win.

Sibille, Balfanz Jr., Presley Sorah and Will Rodgers rounded out the top five finishers tonight.

Shoutout to Frontstretch.com’s own Michael Massie for his 19th place and his last lap avoidance of the huge wreck!

The next race will take place next Monday, June 20 with the Super Late Models at Worldwide Technology Raceway. Coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET on Twitch.tv/podiumesports.
