Heads up: Talladega weekend
Here are the hot topics, trending news and key story lines to get you ready for this weekend's races at Talladega Superspeedway . WEATHER Can you say "Chamber of Commerce weather?" That's what you'll get at Talladega. It'll be sunny all weekend, with a high of 70 on Friday and a high of 68 on Saturday, with the temperature nosing up to 77 degrees on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Beautiful outlook for a pair of elimination races. KEY TIMES Sprint Cup Series: The biggest change this weekend is Coors Light Qualifying. Rather than qualifying on Friday, the Sprint Cup Series will do so on Saturday afternoon after the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. The single-car spectacle is set for 4 p.m. ET on NBCSN. The race is Sunday at 2 p.m. ET, also on NBCSN. Camping World Truck Series: The Camping World Truck Series has a pair of Friday practices (beginning at 1 p.m. ET and 3 p.m. ET, both on FS1). The race is Saturday at 1 p.m. ET on FOX with Keystone Light Pole Qualifying just before at 10:30 a.m. ET (FS1). CATCH DRIVERS LIVE We'll stream every driver press conference in the Talladega media center at NASCAR.com/presspass . Among the notables Friday: Chase Elliott (12:30 p.m. ET), Joey Logano (12:45 p.m. ET) and Martin Truex Jr . (3:30 p.m. ET). Click here for a full schedule. LAST TIME Joey Logano swept the Round of 12 last year, beating Alabama's favorite son Dale Earnhardt Jr . -- and eliminating him from the Chase -- in the process. The Team Penske driver led 20 laps to Earnhardt Jr.'s 61, and he held off Junior on an abbreviated green- white -checkered finish. Logano was first and Earnhardt Jr. second as the field's only attempt at a GWC conclusion went green. A wreck just past the start/finish line brought out the caution, ending the race just as Logano and Earnhardt Jr. were racing for the lead. Logano was in the lead at the time and declared the winner. Eventually, NASCAR tweaked its green- white -checkered rule in the offseason, leading to the addition of the overtime line. YOU SHOULD KNOW • With Dale Jr. sidelined for the rest of the season, Brad Keselowski may hold the mantle as the best restrictor-plate racer in NASCAR. The driver of the No. 2 Ford has three top-five finishes in the past four Talladega races, including two wins -- to bring his total 'Dega wins to four. He also won at Daytona in July. And following a wreck at Kansas last week, Keselowski likely has to win to advance in the postseason. • It's not just Keselowski who is in win-or-else mode. Chase Elliott essentially is facing a "must-win" scenario to advance into the next round. The rookie is 25 points behind the cutoff line. • Keep an eye on Joey Logano and Austin Dillon . They are tied for the final transfer spot, with Logano currently owning the tiebreaker thanks to his third-place finish at Kansas. Their stories are quite different. Logano won all three Round of 12 races last year, but his performances and speed slipped this year; Dillon is in his first postseason and one race away from making the Round of 8 after being seeded 15th out of 16 drivers at the start of the Chase. • This is the first elimination race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chase, with two drivers getting knocked out of the postseason. Daniel Hemric and John Hunter Nemechek are both 15 points below the cutoff line and will need to make up some serious ground.
Katelyn Sweet tops Paige White for Better Half Dash win
CONCORD, N.C. -- Last year's Better Half Dash runner-up Katelyn Sweet said last year she didn't want to nab a win before her boyfriend Kyle Larson nabbed his first Sprint Cup victory. Larson's first win at Michigan in August presented an opportunity for Sweet to dominate and win Thursday's sixth annual Better Half Dash race at Charlotte Motor Speedway . The event, which featured 10 competitors, raised more than $70,000 for the Motor Racing Outreach, Speedway Children's Charities and the other charities selected by each competitor. "It's pretty awesome. I'm glad that we let him get the win before I did," Sweet said with a smile on Larson in Victory Lane. "… Now I can kind of trash talk him and tell him to how to drive the car." Driving the No. 42 Nature Made Chevrolet, Sweet led the majority of the event after starting from the pole position. She passed Paige White , Brad Keselowski 's girlfriend, in the final laps for the lead. White held on to finish second, while Ty Dillon ’s wife, Haley Dillon, came up third. Anna McAllister, fiancée of Roush Fenway Racing tire changer Cory Baldwin, and Kinsley Parsons, fiancée of NASCAR official Patrick Marrill, rounded out the top five finishers. Larson, who spotted for Sweet, was on site in Victory Lane with the couple's young son Owen, who rocked a coordinating Nature Made fire suit to his mom's pink one. "Lots of fun, MRO does a good job with it," Larson said on the event. "I know Katelyn has looked forward to it for the last few years. She did good, she was really good." Third-place finisher Dillon was impressive in her No. 3, as she aggressively weaved from the back to the front twice in the event after getting caught up in minor spins. She couldn't quite make it all the way up front, but said she'll be back next year. "Absolutely," Dillon said. "They can't keep me from doing this. It's been so much fun and I will gladly accept the invitation. It was a blast." And it appears Sweet, whose brother Brad Sweet drives sprint cars and previously competed in the NASCAR XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series, may have caught the racing fever. "Yeah I do," Sweet said when asked if she wanted to race on a more regular basis. "Maybe not every weekend, that sounds a little bit much." "Both Charlotte races," White offered. "Yeah, both Charlotte races. Because I am not going to run in high heels," Sweet said, referencing the High Heel Dash in May. You heard it: Wheels over heels. &amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;<span _rtetemp="spchk" style="background-color: #ffffaa;" _rtespchksugg="Lt"alt"ult"flt"let"lit"lat"lot"ltd"t">am</span>p;lt;/p&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;
