On @USATODAYsports: How did the stars align for Brad Keselowski to get pushed by Matt Kenseth to victory? usat.ly/1rms2QB #nascar

Nope. 10th in pts. RT @EmilyMiller89: @jeff_gluck if @keselowski came in 2nd, would he still be in the #Eliminator8
Quiet Track, Talladega. #NASCAR @ Talladega Superspeedway instagram.com/p/uWtibHNXpr/
More Talladega reaction: Kyle Busch eliminated. usat.ly/1yQdCRh
More Talladega reaction: Kasey Kahne eliminated. usat.ly/1zhgurH
Scouting for quiet track pic. It's so peaceful and calm. Ahhh... vine.co/v/Ob6bXa3HLgE
Talladega reaction stories coming in. Jimmie Johnson: usat.ly/1wqDroz Dale Jr.: usat.ly/1FnM87g
Yeah, @nateryan. RT @BJewkes I think we can put the notion of winners starting/parking or coasting to bed. Hasn't happened. Won't. #NASCAR

Too low is likely a P3. That's a 15 point penalty. Newman is up 27 points, so it's likely moot if it indeed is a P3.

Newman was 27 points ahead of Kahne. So that would have to be a pretty big penalty to knock him out of Chase.
Uhhhh...Ryan Newman was found to be too low in the rear on both sides. Possible penalties Monday or Tuesday. Could that affect Chase?
Roger Penske defends Keselowski: "These guys are jealous of the job he's done this year." Says "I want him to get mad" when he's wronged.
.@landoncassill finished FOURTH today. Previous best career finish (147 starts): 12th. His reaction: twitter.com/landoncassill/…
Roger Penske says he supports Keselowski: "I'll take the $50 grand (fine) and the win this week, wouldn't you?" #NASCAR
The final eight drivers: Logano, Harvick, Newman, Hamlin, Kenseth, Edwards, Gordon and...Keselowski. #NASCAR
Heard from Dale Jr., Kahne, Joe Gibbs and Dave Rogers after race. Plenty of coverage coming at usatoday.com/sports/nascar
Kahne spotter. RT @KevinHamlin: I feel sick
Kenseth sits beside Clint Bowyer, who says: "Do you realize you just pushed Brad Keselowski to a win? Karma’s a @#%#!, isn’t it?" #nascar

I can’t believe Brad Keselowski is tied for the points lead with four races to go. This format…wow.
Kyle Busch did not respond to questions. He walked straight out of garage. pic.twitter.com/KzTWybKHwO
OUT OF CHASE: Kahne, Kyle out, Johnson, Dale Jr. out.
Brad Keselowski WINS RACE and advances to next round!!! Unreal!!
Keselowski leading...and here comes Newman!
Trevor Bayne gets spun out of pack but NO caution. Keselowski leads.
Brad Keselowski is leading the race and has to win or he gets eliminated. Two laps left to go at Talladega. #NASCAR
Plus, if any of the bottom four guys I just mentioned wins the race, they automatically get into the next round and someone else goes home.
Bottom four drivers right now are: Kahne, Keselowski, Johnson, Dale Jr. But Kyle Busch tied for last spot with Kahne.
NASCAR primer for non-fans: Overtime finish at Talladega coming up. This race decides four drivers who will be cut before next playoff round
They will try for another GWC (two-lap overtime). There's a max of three attempts allowed. This is No. 2.
ESPN says Gilliland got into the back of Biffle to start crash.
I believe Greg Biffle started that crash.
David Gilliland, Menard, Annett also involved.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. involved in wreck. His Chase is over.
Keselowski to the lead
Here we go. Hang on.
Running order for two-lap overtime: Newman-BradK-Logano-Johnson. Newman has Logano pushing. BradK has JJ pushing. Obv 22 wants to help 2.
So there's going to be a green-white-checkered. KyBusch, Keselowski, Johnson, Dale Jr currently out. Kenseth, Kahne both +4 points.
I hope TV shows the debris, I really do.
Caution for debris with four laps to go at Talladega. #NASCAR
The Penske cars had just linked up. Not sure what caution for.
Caution...caution...
Keselowski and Johnson need to work together to get up to Newman. Then race each other.
Six laps to go. Huge pack. Seems like a wreck is imminent. We'll see.
Seven laps to go. This is freaking intense.
Danica got hung in the middle...dropping.
Coming to the green flag with nine laps to go at Talladega. #NASCAR
#NASCAR … Knaus tells Johnson that points haven't changed Still out of transfer spot. "You got to win buddy." #AskMRN @MRNRadio
