On Sunday, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series moves to Alabama for the Aaron's 499. This high-octane event will be held at the tri-oval track of the Talladega Superspeedway. Race time is set at 1:00 PM ET.

Last week, Matt Kenseth ended his 76 winless streak by winning the Samsung Mobile 500. He led 169 of 334 laps and stayed away from trouble as he cruised to an 8.315 seconds win over runner up Clint Bowyer.

Carl Edwards leads the driver's standing with 256 points. He has a 9-point over Kyle Busch. The rest of the Top 10 drivers in the standing are Matt Kenseth, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Ryan Newman, Juan Pablo Montoya, Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.

Last year's race winner Kevin Harvick hopes to duplicate his success at the Talladega Superspeedway. While defending champion Jimmie Johnson hopes to earn the checkered flag this time after ending up in 2nd place behind Kevin Harvick in 2010.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Kevin Harvick as the favorite to beat the rest of the field at the Aaron's 499. His next closest competitors that could beat him are Kyle Busch and Dale Earnhardt Jr.
