Sprint Cup, Camping World Trucks weekend schedule at Talladega

0 Comments

Twelve drivers will enter Sunday’s CampingWorld.com 500 at Talladega Superspeedway in the Chase. Eight will remain after the checkered flag falls.

Several drivers are on the bubble,  including Matt Kenseth, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kyle Busch and Ryan Newman.

Other than Joey Logano – who has won the first two races in Round 2 – every other Chase driver is vulnerable to elimination Sunday.

Also, the Camping World Truck Series returns to action after a two-week layoff. The Xfinity Series is off this weekend.
