47 cars will attempt to make this Sunday’s Aaron’s 499, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series’ first race at Talladega Superspeedway this season. The number of teams on the entry list is the highest amount of entrants since the Duck Commander 500, which also had 47 entrants.

Five drivers will attempt to make their very first Talladega race while Terry Labonte will be attempting to make his 60th career Talladega race. Four drivers will be required to qualify by speed: Eric McClure, Dave Blaney, Joe Nemechek, and Michael McDowell. Michael Waltrip, Brian Scott, and Trevor Bayne will make their returns to the Sprint Cup Series for this weekend; Waltrip is the winner of the 2003 Talladega fall race.
