Welcome to Talladega Superspeedway, where the racing normally is crazy and where it could be that and more this Nascar Geico 500 weekend.

NASCAR reduced the size of the holes in the restrictor plates from 56/64ths of an inch to 55/64ths, cutting approximately 12-15 horsepower and likely a few miles per hour. There was no additional practice scheduled for Sunday’s race following the change and ahead of qualifying and racing, a move that’s not unprecedented for NASCAR.

NASCAR heads to the biggest and fastest track of them all, Talladega Superspeedway, this weekend for a race that is sure to keep race fans on their heels. Green flag on the 500-mile Cup Series thriller is scheduled to fly at 2 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Sunday’s GEICO 500 will present Busch, who is threatening to turn the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series into a personal parade, with an opportunity few drivers have reached in recent decades. Only eight Cup drivers have won four races in a row since 1972.

Harvick had his shot earlier in the season, winning at Atlanta, Las Vegas and Phoenix in a stretch of three weeks before Martin Truex Jr. ended the streak at Auto Club Speedway in California.

Drivers are hoping that Kyle Busch is unable to secure a fourth-straight win, so that they can secure their own spot in the NASCAR playoffs with a trip to Victory Lane. To do that, they’ll have to avoid “The Big One” as well. Those who have already secured their spot alongside Busch include pole starter Kevin Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Martin Truex Jr. and Austin Dillon.

Busch has won at Texas, Bristol and Richmond and will be among the favorites at Talladega, despite the fact that Busch, acknowledged as one of his generation’s best racers, has won only once at NASCAR’s biggest track. His average finish there is 20.8, not a number that rings bells.

At the end of the race, everybody is saving their best for the end. Cars are just going everywhere. The plan you thought you had — you’ve got to make a new one. You’ve got to go on the fly.”

Johnson owns two Talladega victories, and his season of struggle has shown some signs of sunshine in recent weeks. An expert in the draft, he figures to be among the potential winners Sunday.

As for Bayne, he’ll be racing under a stronger microscope Sunday – and for the rest of the season.

Roush Fenway Racing announced Wednesday that 2003 series champion Matt Kenseth will share the team’s No. 6 Fords with Bayne the rest of this year. Kenseth’s mission is to help the team define its issues and repair them.
