NASCAR At Talladega 2012: Starting Lineup, TV Time & More

On Sunday, Greg Biffle and Kasey Kahne will represent Washington state at Talladega Superspeedway in the 10th race of the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

Biffle enters the race as the overall points leader for the Sprint Cup, but is just five points above Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in the standings. He'll likely need to shoot for a top-five finish to retain a sizable lead, or extend it. Earnhardt is viewed as one of the favorites to win, however, which could knock Biffle out of the top spot for the first time since the very first race of the season.

Biffle is No. 6 in the starting lineup, just one spot behind Kahne, who moved up to No. 23 in the Sprint Cup standings last week after finishing at No. 5. The race at Richmond was Kahne's best finish of the year after a horrible stretch of bad luck at the start of the season.

The race will begin at 10:20 a.m. PT on Sunday and will be televised nationally on FOX.
