By: Charles Bradley
16:59 See you next time!
16:59 Kinda fitting to leave the final word with Bubba after a weekend where he was subjected to something nobody should have to deal with.
16:57 Wallace: "It's been tough. It's been hell, maybe not hell, but it's hectic. Look at these guys here [pointing to his fans], first time here from Atlanta. The deal is changing. I wanted to show whoever it was they ain't going to take away my smile. I shoulda won that damn race, but the stars didn't align and we ran out of gas. The pre-race deal was one of the hardest things in my life, with all the team and supporters. I'm still smiling."
16:55 Wallace is high-fiving his fans.
16:54 Wallace, who finished 14th, is waving to the fans and walking across the infield grass.
16:53 Blaney: "Just trying to block the best we could. Top, bottom. 20 got to my outside. Not sure if I was three wide, hate it for him, we were just beating and banging to the line."
16:52 Pick the bones out of that one. What a crazy finish.
16:52 Race order: Blaney, Stenhouse, Almirola, Hamlin, Jones, Buescher and Bowman.
