At Talladega Superspeedway, the steering wheel may be in the driver's hands, but deciding his course is a team effort. When it comes to picking drafting partners, clearing the 'big one' and knowing who's surrounding his car, it's the spotter that helps relay the critical information. Travis Kvapil, driver of the No. 93 Burger King/Dr Pepper Toyota, relies on Toby Whealdon to be his eyes in the sky. They worked together to bring Kvapil a 16th-place finish at Talladega earlier this season. They look to improve their results in Sunday's Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 at the 2.66-mile, high-banked tri-oval.
Kvapil has nine Cup Series starts at Talladega. His best finish is sixth place, which he achieved in 2008. Kvapil has one pole (2008) and has led laps in five events, including four of the last five races. In his last race at Talladega, Kvapil started 41st and finished 16th.
