Track: Talladega Superspeedway (Race 30 of 36 in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and fourth race in the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup).

Race: Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 (188 laps /500 miles)

Trivia Question: (Answer Below) Dodge's Brad Keselowski has won two NSCS races at Talladega. How many total laps has he led in both wins?

HOWARD COMSTOCK (SRT Motorsports Engineering) Don't Worry About Fuel: "Talladega will not be about fuel economy. Talladega is not about tires. There's a possibility that some teams will take left side tires only once during the 500-mile race. You only need enough fuel to stay with the drafting partners that you've have."

Scary Green Flag Stops: "Green flag stops are scary at Talladega because everyone can be in-line and do the right things on the race track, but when they come to pit road, positions change. Drivers are swerving right, swerving left, and that's when we tend to see trouble here. It's perfect choreography on the race track, but when you get to pit road, all the dynamics change. You have to get onto pit road clean, get into your pit box and not flat-spot your tires braking hard. You can't have lumpy tires at Talladega. "

Run Up Front, Run Out Back: "You can run in the front, run in the back, but only one Chase driver in 2011 finished inside of the top-five at Talladega in the fall race. That was Brad Keselowski. If you remember, there was a very late caution and those drivers that were laying back waiting to get to the front got caught and didn't have enough time to make their move. I think you'll see guys move to the front earlier than they did last year. If you're fast enough to run up front, that's where you want your car."

Trivia Answer: Eleven. Keselowski led the final lap at the spring event in 2009 and 10 laps earlier this year.
