NASCAR will spend one extra day in Alabama at the Talladega Superspeedway. Rain storms postponed Sunday’s GEICO 500, and the race will now run on Monday at 3 p.m. ET. The race was scheduled to air on FOX, and it will still air on FOX Monday afternoon.

Chase Elliott is the favorite for this race, installed by DraftKings Sportsbook at +700. Joey Logano follows at +750, and then Brad Keselowski at +800. Elliott and Logano top the DraftKings DFS prices at $10,400 and $10,200, respectively. However, Keselowski is sixth in price at $9,600. Ryan Blaney ($10,100), Clint Bowyer ($9,900), and Christopher Bell ($9,700) are ahead of him in pricing.

Martin Truex Jr. has the pole position in this race, joined by Denny Hamlin in the front row. Kyle Busch and Jimmie Johnson are in the second row, with Kevin Harvick and Brad Keselowski in the third row. Garrett Smithley and Brendan Gaughan are the last two cars in the starting lineup.
