NASCAR At Talladega Superspeedway: 2011 Chase Weekend Schedule

Welcome to the "wild card" race of the 2011 Chase. This weekend, the championship battle hits the high banks of Talladega Superspeedway for the Good Sam Club 500. 

Carl Edwards heads to Talladega with a five point advantage over Kevin Harvick in the Chase standings, while Jimmie Johnson faces an uphill climb after his championship hopes took a hard hit at Charlotte.

With the ''big one" always looming at Talladega, Sunday's race could make or break a team's chance at the title. 

Fans can once again expect the two-car tandems seen throughout the year at Talladega and Daytona, despite rule changes implemented by NASCAR. .

With April's race at Talladega coming down to photo-finish between four two-car tandems, teammates and a good pusher could make all of the difference in the final laps. 

That race saw a record number of lead changes, 88, prompting the track to put $100,000 on the line if the field is able to reach 100 lead changes, with the bonus going to the driver that completes the most lead changes.
