Mash The Gas: NASCAR Talladega Preview

Mash The Gas: NASCAR Talladega Preview”

"I'm definitely looking forward to Talladega this weekend", said Stenhouse, who is from nearby Olive Branch, Miss. "They've been really good to me. Talladega is considered my home track so it meant a lot to me to have my dad and friends there to help celebrate my first Cup win". He followed up his Talladega win with another restrictor-plate triumph at Daytona International Speedway in July.

The 2017 NASCAR Monster Energy Series heads to one of its faster tracks this week as drivers compete in the Alabama 500. Busch has one win at Talladega in his career to go with an average finish of 20.5 and a driver rating of 80.9. He enters the race coming off a 13th-place finish in the Round of 12 opener at Charlotte.

Earnhardt then added, "I just want to thank Talladega Superspeedway, the state of Alabama". "Nothing is guaranteed when you go there".

The vehicle belongs to the Motorsports Hall, which is located on Talladega Superspeedway property. "But, this would be a real important one if we could win for all the fans, all year long, we certainly owe them a win". On Talladega's All-Time Wins List, he tails only his father, Dale Sr., who has ten career victories at the famous 2.66-mile tri-oval.

Busch is now sixth in the point standings.

That's right, not a replica, but the actual vehicle., a 1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo that Junior's father, Dale Earnhardt Sr., drove to his first career Cup win at Bristol in 1979. The Earnhardt family means more to Talladega Superspeedway than we can express, so it is our honor to present the race vehicle his father drove to his first championship to him. "I think you're going to see at least 10 of us racing really hard for that". "We obviously race pretty decent".

There are things that are neat and cool and awesome, but Talladega Superspeedway and the state of Alabama went way beyond those superlatives Friday when they thanked Dale Earnhardt Jr. for all the great memories he's given fans there over the almost last two decades. He's got just six races left before he turns over his No. 88 Chevrolet to Hendrick Motorsports and replacement driver Alex Bowman.

And for the first time in these playoffs, the Ford drivers might have a fighting chance.

Of course Dale Jr. immediately took out Dale Sr.'s vehicle for a spin. Team Penske has won three of the last four races at Talladega. He is eight points ahead of Kaz Grala and 14 points better than John Hunter Nemechek. Kyle Larson and Kevin Harvick are doing ok with an over 25 point gap above the cutoff, but a below 30th place finish will erase that gap pretty quickly.
