Matt Kenseth defending title in Talladega Superspeedway's "Wild Card" race

Talladega Superspeedway's Camping World RV Sales 500 is often referred to as the "Wild Card" event in the final 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship because of the race's unpredictability.

No one knows the track's personality better than current Sprint Cup Series Championship points leader Matt Kenseth, who captured his first career Talladega victory during last year's Camping World RV Sales 500.

Can he repeat that success in the Chase's "Wild Card" event? That feat has been accomplished by only three drivers – Dale Earnhardt who did it twice (1983-84 & 1990-91), Clint Bowyer (2010-11), and Dale Earnhardt Jr., who reeled off four straight triumphs from 1999-2002.

The most competitive racing in NASCAR returns to Talladega Superspeedway October 18-20, 2013 for the Camping World RV Sales 500 Weekend.
