TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Jimmie Johnson didn't mind a little tag teaming.
Of course, he won the race.
Matt Kenseth thought it was a terrible idea.
Then again, he was knocked out in a crash.
NASCAR drivers have always had a love-hate relationship with restrictor-plate racing, essentially based on how they finish. It's the same for the fans, who moan and groan about how boring it is - until there's another nail-biter of an ending like the one at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday.
Johnson edged out Clint Bowyer by two-thousandths of a second to tie for the closest finish since NASCAR started using electronic timing. But others weren't so thrilled by what they saw before that, everyone riding around two by two by two.
