Ryan Preece
TALLADEGA, Ala. – Rookie Ryan Preece, riding along 17th in Xfinity Series driver points at this early stage of the season, gets a big new testSaturday.

Preece will race for the first time at super-fast Talladega Superspeedway in Saturday’s Sparks Energy 300 Xfinity race.

Typically, cars circle the 2.66-mile track in giant drafting packs, an art and a science that rewards experience and patience.

“I’m looking forward to getting there and getting adjusted to it all,” Preece said. “The big drafts will take some getting used to, I’m sure. It helps that I’ll have a couple of teammates (Ross Chastain and Garrett Smithley) out there, too.”

Preece will be in the G&K Services Chevy in Saturday’s 113-lap event.

Practice is scheduled at Talladega at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. (ET) Friday. Qualifying is set for 10:30 a.m. Saturday, with the race to follow at 3 p.m.

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
