NASCAR Racing: Talladega Superspeedway

by

Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. This week NASCAR racing takes place at the Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, AL. Practice took place today for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as well as the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on this 2.66 mile giant track.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will be racing in the AMP Energy Juice 500 on Sunday for the 33rd race of the season and the seventh race in the chase for the Sprint Cup. Coors Light Pole Qualifying will be on Saturday afternoon. 5 Mark Martin was fastest in practice.

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series held qualifying on Friday. The Trucks qualify different than the other NASCAR Series’. They don’t come onto the track according to a draw, but rather by speed. The slowest in practice come out first and the fastest in practice come out last. There are two Trucks on the track at the same time, so qualifying doesn’t take as long. I really like this format.

33 Ron Hornaday, Jr. qualified in the Pole position with 23 Jason White next to him on the front row. Completing the top five are, 3 Austin Dillon, 2 Ken Schrader and 51 Aric Almirola. The Mountain Dew 250 will be raced on Saturday late afternoon.
