2013 Talladega II: NASCAR Sprint Cup Starting Line-Up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

Today's NASCAR Sprint Cup 45th Annual Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega Superspeedway will be the 89th time that the series has raced at the 2.66-mile track. NASCAR has been coming to Talladega, Alabama since 1969. The first race was won by Richard Brickhouse in a '69 Dodge. Interestingly, the Pole speed for that first race was 196.386 mph while today's Pole sitter Carl Edwards turned in a lap of 199.675 mph.

Talladega is a massive tri-oval which has banking of 33 degrees in the turns. The 4,300 foot frontstretch is 16.5 degrees while the 4000 foot backstretch is a mere two degrees. The grandstands will hold 143,231 NASCAR fans.

It used to be easy to pick a winner at Talladega, just pick the manufacturer Chevrolet, and one of the Earnhardts. But the times have been a changin'.

The last 12 races at Talladega have been won by 10 different drivers - (Jeff Gordon - Fall '07, Kyle Busch - Spring '08, Tony Stewart - Summer '08, Brad Keselowski - Spring '09 & Spring '12, Jamie McMurray - Fall '09, Kevin Harvick - Spring '10, Clint Bowyer - Fall '10 & Fall '11, Jimmie Johnson - Spring '11, Matt Kenseth - Fall '12, David Ragan - Spring '13).

During that span Chevrolet has returned to the top of the manufacturers while four manufacturers have won during those 12 races (Chevrolet - six times, Ford - three times, Toyota - twice, , Dodge).

All that being said, Talladega is highly unpredictable, and a total crap-shoot.

The official PaddockTalk pick to win is... Clint Bowyer who has three top-fives in the last six events, and two wins. No one else has more than two top-five finishes during that span. Bowyer is also the only driver with two wins over the last six events.

Should Bowyer fail, keep an eye the entire field. Because after the big one, it could be just about anyone's race.

Enjoy!
