After four action-packed playoff races, the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series arrived at Talladega Superspeedway in Lincoln, Alabama for the fifth playoff race as well as the second race of the Round of 12. Fans were also eagerly awaiting the start of yet another exciting race this Sunday, October 2, 2022. YellaWood 500 will be live on NBC and MRN at 2:00 pm ET.

The 31st race of the 2022 NASCAR season will be contested on a 2.66-mile-long Superspeedway. 37 drivers, including 12 playoff drivers, will compete for over 188 laps in the fifth playoff race of the season to secure a chance at driving down Victory Lane.
