NASCAR Sprint Cup GEICO 500 Live
The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series continues to settle into a sense of normalcy heading into Sunday’s Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, Alabama.
What could classify as the usual suspects have started to pile up checkered flags over the past month, with Jimmie Johnson winning two races, Brad Keselowski one and Joey Logano most recently taking down the event in Richmond.
Fans will recall how wild the start of the season was as the entire series tried to adapt to the format change, which helped produce a few surprises.
Things have settled slightly, though the stage format has plenty of winless drivers sitting in good spots on the leaderboard. It makes for an interesting scenario heading into this weekend, where the drivers will tackle one of the most notable events of the season.
Where: Talladega Superspeedway, Alabama
When: Sunday, 2 p.m. ET
