NASCAR live stream 2022: How to watch the GEICO 500 via live online stream NASCAR will head to one of the most unpredictable tracks in the country on Sunday when the GEICO 500 gets underway at Talledega Superspeedway in Alabama.
Talledega is known for crazy crashes and is one of the hardest tracks for drivers to navigate. Denny Hamlin is still searching for his first win of the season and this is a track where he’s had some luck over the years. This will be one that NASCAR fans won’t want to miss.
The last driver to win back-to-back races at Talladega Superspeedway was Ryan Blaney in 2019 and 2020. Blaney won the YellaWood 500 toward the end of the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series season and then won the GEICO 500 early in the 2020 campaign.

Wallace's win came in the midst of what has been a successful string of superspeedway races for the 23XI Racing driver. He finished second in the 2021 Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona and finished second in the 2022 Daytona 500.
The 2.66-mile tri-oval of Talladega Superspeedway welcomes back the NASCAR Cup Series this weekend with qualifying for the GEICO 500 set for Saturday morning.
This is the first of two NASCAR Cup Series races at Talladega; the YellaWood 500 is scheduled for the first weekend in October. The track has hosted two races a season since 1970 the second year it was open.
Kyle Busch comes in off a victory last weekend on the dirt short track in Bristol as drivers will contend with dramatically different conditions in the series' 10th race of the season.
Chase Elliott leads Ryan Blaney by three points in the standings. Elliott picked up an eighth-place finish on the dirt while Blaney was fifth. Busch started in the 11th spot on the grid before moving up for the win. Tyler Reddick finished second and Joey Logano was third.
Brad Keselowski held off William Byron by 0.102 seconds in an overtime finish last April 25 for his last NASCAR Cup Series victory. It was the only lap he led in a race with 35 lead changes and 16 different cars in front at some point over the 500-mile haul.
