The Sprint Cup Series and its 12 remaining Chase drivers are preparing for the last race of the Round of 12 at the unpredictable Talladega Superspeedway.
Heading into the Alabama 500, Joey Logano and Austin Dillon are tied for the bubble with 3,045 points each. With Dillon below the cutoff spot are Denny Hamlin (-6 points from the cutoff), Brad Keselowski (-7) and Chase Elliott (-25).
Keselowski won the May Talladega race and is the only repeat winner in the last 11 races at the 2.66-mile track. Both Elliott and Dillon’s only restrictor-plate wins have come at Daytona in the Xfinity Series.
