NASCAR is back at the iconic Talladega Superspeedway this weekend, with Jeb Burton taking home the checkered flag yesterday for his first Xfinity Series win.
Today, the Cup Series race gets underway with Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Chase Elliott, and Brad Keselowski all looking for their first win this year. But I’m calling it right now… our man Ryan Blaney wins today. You heard it here first…
And while COVID will keep the crowd to a limited capacity, (35% this weekend), it should still be a damn good time for the fans that manage to make it out to the track.
In fact, Talladega is one of the rowdiest crowds in all of NASCAR.
Just check out these highlights from a few years back… it might be the greatest video on the entire internet.
I mean what a total shit show, right?
Granted, I’m still pretty new to NASCAR, but everybody keeps telling me that I’ll love it even more when I finally get the chance to attend a race. And while I don’t think I’m quite cut out for this particular crowd anymore…. I can’t wait.
