Column: Talladega is too dicey to be in NASCAR's playoffs

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Here's what went right at Talladega Superspeedway:

— It was a beautiful day with packed grandstands.

— Fans were treated to a sincere send-off to Dale Earnhardt Jr.

— NBC's overnight television rating was the highest for this race since 2012, when it was aired on ESPN.

Brad Keselowski used a last-lap pass to win Sunday and advance into the next round of the playoffs.
