Yes it's very possible.  There is no road course at talledega.  

So you propose when stalls were assigned last week the someone between then and now redid it?

Have no idea what the second part says.  I’m saying that at some point between (at least) last Fall and this past race that someone from NASCAR at least checked on and went into the garage stalls to verify they were still in good order and were able to be used for that race.  This would be especially true if there hasn’t been any race/event there in 9 months.  

As another poster asked above, if this were in fact a coincidence, it’s roughly a 2% chance that he would have been randomly assigned that particular stall. A week after the banning of the Confederate flag and during all the current unrest.  In Alabama.  There are coincidences, and then there are enormous coincidences.

Jimmie Johnson tests positive for COVID-19.

This NASCAR season has had everything

He was set to test a Ganassi Indycar next week. And also stated he was open to do a full season of indycar road and street races. For the first time I heard him say his wife might let him try the Indianapolis 500 as he feels the new windscreen has greatly improved the safety. Get well soon JJ.

The NBC commentator group and the way they display the standings are suboptimal. 

The vertical column on the left side of the screen is much better.

Left/right eye movement is more natural than up/down.

Not a good showing for Goodyear.  Glad to see Hamlin climb out of the car. He hit hard. Looked a little wobbly though.

Aggressive setups and no practice are as much to blame as Goodyear.

The Open was a lot more fun to watch then the actual race. Seemed everyone was in a "be nice today"  :drive: mood during the race for a million.

The race wasn't long enough for the second groove to come in.  This and the lack of lapped cars made it a parade.

Watching the Infinity road course race in Charlotte while cooking dinner. The rain has been coming down pretty hard & gonna get worse in 15-10 minutes. Huge roostertails behind the cars. Thankfully only one caution. Just finished stage 1.

Crazy entertaining stuff.

@jeff_gluck: Chase Elliott WINS at Martinsville and advances to the final four for the first time!

Kevin Harvick ELIMINATED from playoffs despite one of the best seasons in decades. Misses by ONE point. HARVICK tried to wreck Kyle Busch coming to the finish and wrecked himself too!!!!!

 

@rubbinisracing: Harvick went for it all, and just came up short https://twitter.com/ChuckTamato/status/1323036748176412674/video/1

First time I feel like this format isn't right. He won 1/4th the races this year. Feel like the current model needs tweaking.

I feel like he could have spun Kyle much easier going into the turn. I understand he was trying to pass as clean as possible, but......

NASCAR has constantly tweaked with the Chase/Playoffs format since its inception 17 years ago.  Harvick would have already clinched the championship under the old pre-Chase scoring system but according to some guy on Reddit with too much time on his hands, Alex Bowman is the driver who's been most negatively impacted by the current Playoffs scoring vs. the previous three formats.
