NASCAR fans can watch the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega live online and see whether Jeff Gordon can hold onto his Sprint Cup Series lead against a field of tough contenders.
Gordon took the series lead this week with 341 points, though he’s yet to win a race this year. Gordon has come in second at both Richmond and Texas, and has four top five finishes overall. Gordon has found success at Talladega Superspeedway before, winning six times in 42 career starts.
The race kicks off Sunday at 1 pm from Talladega.
Fans who watch the Aarons 499 live online will see if Talladega will see a different driver step up. Matt Kenseth, who is just behind Gordon in the standings with 336 points, has three top five finishes this year and is looking for his second ever win at Talladega.
Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch will also be contenders, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. is looking to add to a strong start to the NASCAR season that includes one win and five top-5 finishes.
But Jeff Gordon may have an added incentive. After a close finish at Richmond, he is eager to win at Talladega.
“It’s frustrating to not win, but also each time we run this good, it builds more confidence and momentum that we’re going to get that win soon…as good as we’re running, I definitely feel like we can win races just about anywhere that we go, and if we continue to perform like this, we are going to win,” he said in an interview on motorsport.com. That’s how you win.”
