Talladega SuperspeedwayTalladega Superspeedway, If you are looking for a Sprint Cup race dominated by the concept of “family” of the Good Sam Club 500 Sunday could be.

Most of the 43 drivers participating in the fall race 43rd Annual Talladega Superspeedway on Sunday will be super selfish. In a circuit where two car project is all going to be looking for partners or colleagues manufacturer drafting tandem connections.

Ford drivers will be working under the general guidelines for officials to work only with other drivers as Blue Ford oval suits seek to protect and enhance the potential championship Chase drivers
Carl Edwards, who for the first time in the standings, and Matt Kenseth, driver elsewhere.

Edwards is expected that the project with Greg Biffle Sunday, Kenseth will be combined with David Ragan. The four drivers of Roush Fenway Racing.

On the side of Chevrolet, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. will be the joint project, as the pole winner Mark Martin and Jeff Gordon. Kevin Harvick is expected that the project with his teammate Paul Menard Richard Childress Racing.

Trevor Bayne was the fastest in Saturday’s qualifying Ford. It will start fourth in Sunday’s race and will be able to help any Ford driver, who happens to be in the neighborhood.

Bayne made with Gordon Chevrolet at Daytona International Speedway in February, Bayne has used the experience to win the Daytona 500. But the protocol is likely to prevent the two working together since Sunday.

“I hate to say it, but every manufacturer wants to set the type of career a bit,” said Bayne. “It’s hard if you’re not a boy Chase, because you are not a priority. Do not want to see us working with a Chevrolet that is in the Chase.

“This is how it is. I’m on board with them. But it’s still a bit difficult to want to go to work with someone who is good to try to win.”

Ford’s edict to run in the family on Sunday breaking the David Gilliland (Ford)-Tony Stewart (Chevrolet) pairing, which has proved successful in previous races.

“It’s a tight points battle now, and we will try to help the Ford guys everything we can,” said Gilliland. “I feel good about it. Tony was a pleasure working with the last two races, and you never know what will happen. If you get to the end and is out of the couple and something happens to Travis (Kvapil) that are 100 percent comfortable working together.

“You never know what can happen in the race. In terms of our initial plan, which is working with Ford.”

Bayne had a spectacular arrival on the racing board in February, winning most important race of the sport. There should be no shortage of potential partners in the drafting of Sunday.

“It’s a lot of ideas,” said Bayne. “It’s all a game of chess here. Being in the right position and know when to go. Be very, very patient, and hard. Normally, you’re thinking of going with five, three to go, you gotta go to the front. But here you can wait until the last lap. You can wait until you’re out of turn four. That’s the hardest part, trying to be patient and not too far forward. “
