Sunday’s GEICO 70 will feature a two-lap qualifying session to set the grid for the main feature event.
New this week will be a 10-car inversion. The top qualifier will start 10th and the 10th qualifier will start on the pole. Additionally, the top three finishers from last week will start at the tail end of the field – William Byron, Timmy Hill and Parker Kligerman – and will not attempt a qualifying lap. Byron will start last.
The main race will be a total of 70 laps with double-file restarts and lapped cars will go to the rear. There will be three attempts at a green-white-checkered finish, if necessary. The field will consist of a 40-driver maximum.
Drivers will be allowed one reset this week at virtual Talladega Superspeedway with manual cautions. If a car is damaged, drivers must drive back to their pit stall and come to a complete stop. This will automatically apply the fast repair and give the driver a new car.
