Alex Bowman took home the checkered flag in the Toyota Owners 400. Now, the NASCAR world turns its attention toward the 2021 Geico 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.

With Saturday's next NASCAR Cup Series race rapidly approaching with a 2 p.m. EST start time, let's take a look at some drivers to consider when building your fantasy lineup to win the 2021 Geico 500.

Geico 500 Fantasy Picks

*Note: All career results rankings are among active drivers in this weekend's Geico 500 with three or more appearances at the Talladega Superspeedway unless otherwise noted.

Brad Keselowski Fantasy

Target Brad Keselowski: No active driver at this race has more career wins at Talladega than Brad Keselowski (5). He's also got 7 career top-five finishes here and 11 top-10 finishes in his 24 appearances at this track. His track record gives him both a high ceiling and floor entering Saturday's race.

Denny Hamlin Fantasy

Target Denny Hamlin: Denny Hamlin looks like one of the safest picks in this field, as his 9 top-five finishes are the best mark among all active drivers. He's also got the fourth-most top-10 finishes (13). He's also been red hot lately. He has recorded a top-five finish in six straight races, recording a top-three finish in four of those six, and he's coming off three consecutive top-three finishes. Somehow, he hasn't notched a win in that stretch, but his history here suggests that could change on Saturday.

Joey Logano

Target Joey Logano: Another scorching hot driver, Joey Logano is coming off three straight top-10 finishes including a win at the Food City Dirt Race and a third-place finish at the Toyota Owners 400. Logano's history here suggests he should have no trouble staying hot. His 8 top-five finishes at Talladega are second only to Hamlin, and his 3 career wins here are second only to Keselowski. He's got a great chance to keep things rolling this weekend.
