For the first time since the COVID-19 virus, the live sports of the Nascar cup series were shut down due to pandemic.
While the admitted fans wait in the stand, albeit in limited numbers. The track is known to be the most exciting track known as Talladega Superspeedway.
But Mother Nature had other ideas in mind. Due to the heavy weather, Sunday’s race at Tallagada was postponed on the Mondal, and It will begin at 3 pm. ET on Fox.
When the race would start at the Talladega will mark the first Cup series, that would be 2.5 miles of superspeedway since the Daytona 500, which ended with the Ryan Newman’s terrific car crash on the last lap. The incident happened on the changes in the traffic rules that were applied during the first week at the Talladega.
Ford, specifically the Team Penske, has been very dominant at the Tallageda of late, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano are among the favorites to win the Monday Geico 500.
They are also the most favorites in chase Elliot, which tool the victory in the spring race at the Talladega last season.
To pick the winner at the Talladega for the Nascar cup would be like a finding needle in the hay-stack. The great game is like a exciting race that combines both the luck and can’t be won that easily.
The updates from the Talladega includes:
