Guest Blog: You Can’t Spell ‘The Big One’ Without ‘The Big O’

Sunday, 2pm EST, Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama.

It’s known as NASCAR’s biggest, baddest, and fastest track. With 33 degree banking, this 2.66 mile Tri-Oval challenges drivers for the entire race. The nature of superspeedway racing promotes racers to draft off of each other in very close proximity in order to stay with the pack. In other words, ass eating isn’t just for people anymore.

The drivers work hard and fast and the fans get very excitable. At over 220 miles per hour, this can lead to quite the mess. On a track this hot, cars can get turned on and hit the wall at over 200 MPH. If slightly touched at the wrong time, they will flip and land on each other spoiler to windshield, which most would call an unnatural position, and then fly through the air.

Literally fly.

When the race gets to down to nut cutting time, there is always a wreck that takes out almost the entire field, including most of the rides contending for a win that day. NASCAR fans call this “The Big One”. It is destined to happen, you just never know when its gonna come, and it always happens sooner than you expected.

Well I am here to tell you that despite the race running at 2 PM EST Sunday, “The Big One” has already arrived.

Look at that beauty! That car is going to be banging on rear bumpers all day, getting everyone loose in the corners, sometimes doing it 3-wide with a guy on either side. They say rubbing is racing, and this car definitely knows a thing or two about the first one. I can guarantee you that hot rod is going to be sitting on the pole come Sunday afternoon. And trust me, with a scheme like that, the #1 car always finishes first.
