There is no denying that this weekends Sprint Cup race at Talladega is the biggest wild card race of the 26 race regular season. At most tracks that the series stops at, you can easily pick out a handful of drivers that would easily be considered the favorites.
When we go to Talladega however, you can easily pick out about 35 drivers that could be considered the favorite. This track has a knack for providing dramatic finishes, and sometimes surprise winners.
While there is no doubt that guys like Jimmie Johnson and Kyle Busch will still be considered favorites, this is a real opportunity for one of those underrated drivers to make a big time name for themselves.
I will take a look at seven drivers that could be major factors as the race reaches its conclusion this weekend. While these seven drivers may not be considered favorites at some of the other tracks on the schedule, Talladega will certainly provide them a great chance to upset some of the traditional favorites.
