After a respectable run at Richmond International Raceway, Cole Whitt and the No. 72 RTIC Coolers team will head to Talladega this weekend for some speedway action. Hosting the Geico 500, Talladega SuperSpeedway serves as this week's venue for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS), where Whitt has seven previous MENCS starts and has turned 1157 laps; scoring a best finish of 18th. Whitt and the No. 72 team have been steadily building momentum and hope Talladega will provide a solid finish.
RTIC Coolers will join Whitt and the No. 72 in Talladega serving as the primary sponsor for Talladega. Preparing to launch a new series of items, RTIC Coolers offers a wide variety of rotomolded coolers and drinkware. Visit their website www.rticcoolers.com for the current line and upcoming details of new items.
TriStar Motorsports last competed at Talladega in the MENCS in 1996 with Loy Allen Jr. Of their 14 MENCS starts at the 2.666-mile superspeedway, TriStar has secured two top-10 finishes.
The Geico 500 is scheduled for Sunday, May 7, at 2:00pm ET, airing live on FOX.
