The GEICO 500 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car auto race held at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama. This year the race will take place on May 3th, 2015.

The GEICO 500 is also one of four races currently run with restrictor plates, the others being the AMP Energy 500, the Coke Zero 400, and the Daytona 500. Restrictor-plate racing produces surprise winners, unusual strategies (like the new two-car drafts), big wrecks and typically more entertainment than at other tracks.

The Talladega Speedway is located on an old abandoned airfield just outside the small city of Lincoln. It was built in 1960's by International Speedway Corporation. Talladega is most known for its steep banking and the location of the start/finish line which is closer to turn one than at Daytona International Speedway.

Last year’s spring Cup classic at the 2.66-mile venue proved to be a pivotal event in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup as Denny Hamlin claimed the checkered flag and a spot in the title battle in which he finished third. This year’s GEICO 500 will be the 10th event on the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule.
