Greg Biffle currently lead's NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series with 338 points over Dale Earnhardt Jr. with 333 and Denny Hamlin with 329.
Jimmie Johnson is the defending champion for this race, but he is starting on the inside of the tenth row for this year's race and will need to work hard to get back among the leaders. Jeff Gordon has the pole after being the only racer to break the 50 second mark with a 49.973 for a lap.
Look for Earnhardt Jr. to make a push in this race. He is close to the top of the leaderboard, and won the spring race at Talladega in 2004 and 2005. He hasn't had a win on the circuit since 2008 but he looks poised for a victory.
Gordon could also be dangerous. He has been excellent at Talladega in his career. In his 38 starts he has six wins, 14 top-five's and 18 top-10's, though he has struggled recently. Perhaps the pole is a sign that he is back to his old form.
Where to Watch: The race will be broadcast live on FOX starting at noon on Sunday. It can also be seen for free online here.
