Driver Rankings for Talladega


The race that every driver has been worried about is here. Talladega is the most unpredictable race on the schedule. Drivers need a good strategy, some talent behind the wheel and a whole lot of luck in order to finish up front. This race will probably be chaos at the end. The YellaWood 500 can be seen Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on NBC.

My rankings are not a prediction of how the drivers will finish the race. Trying to predict the correct finishing order for this race is just silly. The Driver Rankings are a driver’s value based on his past stats on the Superspeedways with an emphasis on the races at Talladega.
