Any penalties will be announced midweek, but the typical punishment is 35 driver and owner points, a fine and a three-race crew chief suspension - in this case for Drew Blickensderfer. We can expect similar numbers for what should be another wild edition of the GEICO 500 this year.

The 2.66-mile oval in Alabama is the longest on the circuit, and routinely provides entertaining and action-packed racing.

Tony Parker out for the playoffs following knee injury
If they lose the series, it reflects poorly on the team for not being able to take advantage of a clear hole in the Spurs' lineup. San Antonio's trio of Kawhi Leonard , Pau Gasol and LaMarcus Aldridge did the bulk of the work, combining for 64 points.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Joey Logano is the favorite in this race, as he has 7/2 odds.

TALLADEGA, Ala. | Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s farewell tour has officially started. However, the reality is that Earnhardt has been awful this season and it's smarter to avoid him altogether this week.

The shoe is billed as available for pre-order on the BBB website but won't actually be shipped until November 24. Lavar Ball is one of the most polarizing people in the sports world right now and he's not even an athlete.

Worth mentioning: Joey Logano, victor of last weekend's race at Richmond, has finished worse than sixth only once all season, when he crashed at Phoenix and finished 31st. Meanwhile, Larson has been excellent this season but he lacks experience at this track and that could be his biggest issue. He's struggled out of the gate this season, but following back-to-back top-10 finishes, Hamlin looks like he's turned a corner. He's showed strength on restrictor-plate tracks in the past including a stellar run in this year's Daytona 500 when he finished second to Kurt Busch.

A victor at Talladega in 2014, Hamlin usually races well on restrictor-plate tracks. The Wood Brothers Racing driver comes into Sunday's GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway searching for his first career series win and hoping for more consistent finishes as the season races through the month of May. Logano has the second-best average finish in the last eight races on the Superspeedways.

Deshaun Watson bought his mom her 'first official car' for her birthday
