2017 Geico 500

Talladega Superspeedway – Lincoln, AL

May 7, 2017

Our Fantasy NASCAR picks are heading over to the Geico 500 which is hosted by the longest track on the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, the Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama.  The 2.66 mile high banked oval requires the use of restrictor plates to keep the speeds, which can get up over 235 miles an hour, under control.   Hendricks Motorsports is the king team here with 7 wins in the past 16 years while Chevrolet has dominated the manufacturer win column with 19.  Brad Keselowski definitely will be my favorite going into this Sunday having won last Sunday’s Toyota Owners 400 as well as taking the checkered flag at Talladega 4 times in the past 8 years (click here), not to mention that he’s on Team Penske who have taken the last 3 and 4 out of the last 5 races at Talledega (click here)

The weather at Talladega this week is expected to be close to 80 degrees and sunny.(click here).
