The Chase for the Sprint Cup passed the halfway mark in Charlotte with the Bank of America 500, and now we're set for race No. 6 (32 of the season overall) at Talladega Superspeedway. It's the Camping World RV Sales 500, and it promises to be every bit as exciting as you'd expect.
Matt Kenseth leads the Chase with 2225 points, four up on Jimmie Johnson. Kenseth has seven wins on the season, while Johnson has five. Johnson has, of course, finished better on average to be that close with two fewer wins. Kevin Harvick, Jeff Gordon and Kyle Busch are all relatively close at 29, 36 and 37 points back of the lead, respectively.
The race is set to begin at 2 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on ESPN.
