The Nationwide Series will begin what should be a thrilling weekend of racing at Talladega Superspeedway.
Last year’s Nationwide event at Talladega was a wild one to say the least. It featured a track-record 56 leads changes, 11 cautions, two red flags for extensive cleanup efforts and a whole lot of mayhem.
Kyle Busch was involved in a 21-car accident late in the race, but Busch somehow bounced back to win it. The scheduled 117-lap event was extended with two green-white-checkered finishes. Busch propelled to the lead on the final lap when his drafting partner and then Nationwide teammate Joey Logano bumped him to the front. He remained the leader when the race ended under caution for a crash involving Mike Wallace.
