NASCAR’s new Sprint Cup Series race car, the Gen-6, will be a big topic again this weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. The Gen-6 wasn’t exactly a hit in the first restrictor-plate race of the season, the February 24th Daytona 500. The somewhat disappointing race at Daytona International Speedway featured just 28 lead changes due to a lack of passing.
Talladega and Daytona are both restrictor-plate tracks in NASCAR, but Talladega is slightly bigger and wider than Daytona. Live coverage of the Aaron’s 499 from Talladega on AM 1590 and FM 95.5 begins at Noon Sunday.
