Brad Keselowski is red-hot at the right time, and after taking the checkered flag in two of the first three races of the Chase for the Sprint Cup he'll be looking to pay out on the NASCAR Las Vegas Odds once again on Sunday afternoon in the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 at the Talladega Superspeedway.
Keselowski started the Chase with a win at Chicagoland Speedway back on September 16, then moved into first place in the driver standings last weekend by visiting Victory Lane in the AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway.
That stretch has Keselowski holding a slim five-point lead on Jimmie Johnson in the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings heading into this weekend's event at Talladega, with Johnson turning in a fourth-place effort at Dover last week. Johnson also finished second both at Chicagoland and at New Hampshire in the first two races of the Chase.
Denny Hamlin won that race at New Hampshire, and he's 16 points behind Keselowski and 11 points back of Johnson in third place in the current Chase standings. Hamlin will be seeking his first-ever Cup victory at Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday afternoon.
Keselowski has won twice at Talladega in his Cup career, claiming the checkered flag in the Aaron's 499 in 2009 and again in May. Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth, Kasey Kahne and Greg Biffle made up the rest of the Top 5 at Talladega earlier this season, while Hamlin (23rd) and Johnson (35th) both turned in disappointing results that day.
Johnson last won at Talladega at the Aaron's 499 in 2011, while Clint Bowyer will also be looking to be in contention this weekend after winning the October race at Talladega in both 2010 and 2011. Bowyer is fourth in the Chase standings, 25 points back of first.
