Complete Preview for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Talladega
Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports
The Sprint Cup Series returns to Talladega Superspeedway Sunday afternoon.

The Sprint Cup Series makes its second trip of the season to the Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday afternoon for the sixth race of the 2013 Chase for the Championship.

Of the 10 playoff events, this one is clearly the biggest wild card. Not only is the threat of "the big one" always looming, but this is a track where literally all 43 drivers that take the green flag have an equal chance of ending the day in Victory Lane.

The first time that the series visited Talladega back in early May, it was David Ragan, driving for the underfunded Front Row Motorsports team, that scored the win. It was the first win in team history and only the second career victory for Ragan.

Matt Kenseth enters the race with a four-point advantage over Jimmie Johnson while Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch are all still within 37 points of the top spot.

From big wrecks to surprise winners to a potential big shake-up in the standings, anything and everything is sure to happen at Talladega.

So who are the primary drivers to keep an eye on, and what are the biggest stories heading into the sport's biggest wild card? Join us as we break everything down and get you set for the sixth and most unpredictable race of the NASCAR playoffs.
