Tom Bowles: As fun as Talladega is for fans, it's still a mixed bag for drivers

This month marks the 10th-year anniversary of Dale Earnhardt, Sr.'s final masterpiece. Cutting through the Talladega field like a knife, he moved from 18th to first in five laps to take a thrilling victory in what's considered one of the most frenetic NASCAR finishes of all time. His 76th career win highlighted a race with 49 lead changes -- the most in a Cup race in 11 years -- as the restrictor-plate rules package in effect at the time trumpeted parity and passing to spice up competition.
