Race Preview: Aaron’s 499

5 May

There were two hot topics on Twitter ahead of this weekend’s Sprint Cup Series race at Talladega: (1) Kurt Busch’s paint job, and (2) jorts:

It took some effort, but Kurt Busch was finally given permission to use Ricky Bobby’s paint scheme.

Jimmie Johnson says NO to jorts. (You should too).

The Aaron’s 499 is race #10 (out of 36) on the Sprint Cup circuit. The race will take place at Talladega Superspeedway, which is the largest track on the NASCAR schedule, at 2.66 miles around.

Race coverage tomorrow starts at 12:00 PM EDT on FOX. (The race itself starts at 1:19 PM EDT).

Below the logo, find everything you need to prepare for tomorrow’s race.
