We go over how you can watch the Sparks 300 of the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series at the Talladega Superspeedway.

NASCAR is headed to historic Talladega Superspeedway this weekend and the Xfinity Series will continue the first round of its 12-driver playoff. This week, the green flag drops on the Sparks 300 at 4:30 p.m. ET on Saturday. The race will air on NBC and there will be a live stream at NBC Sports Live.

Josh Berry won last week’s Las Vegas race and second-place finish Justin Allgaier was the highest-finishing playoff driver. The strong finish has Allgaier in the pole position for Saturday’s race, although he is a bit back in odds to win at DraftKings Sportsbook, installed at +1100. Justin Haley won this race a year ago and is the pre-race favorite this year, installed at +750. Current playoff leader A.J. Allmendinger follows at +800.

This is the second Xfinity Series race at Talladega. The circuit ran the Ag-Pro 300 in late April and Jeb Burton took the checkered flag. He is installed at +1100 to win.
