“Staying out of the ‘big one,’ the crash that takes out so many cars, is crucial to having success at Talladega. So many strategies – like staying in front or staying in the back – can be used during the race, however, there’s no perfect strategy to run this race. You just have to hope your car is in one piece at the end of the race.
“The big one could lead to a big swing in the points.”
