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.
