No. 12 driver Ryan Blaney of Team Penske won the 2019 1000Bulbs.com 500, held at the Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama. This was the 31st of 36 races in the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the second race of the Round of 12 playoffs series. This was Blaney's first win of the season and third of his career. He beat out Ryan Newman by just .007 seconds, making this the 6th closest finish in NASCAR history. With just 7 laps to go, a major crash at the front of the pack caused Brendan Gaughan's car to fully flip in the air and many drivers involved saw their chances to finish come up short.
