The 188 laps of intense racing action awaits as all teams fully realize the tough challenges presented by their rivals as well as the Talladega Superspeedway.
Constructed in 1969, the Talladega Superspeedway remains to this day the biggest speedway in NASCAR. It has been nicknamed the Big One not just because of its size but also because it is one of the fastest tracks in the country. Drivers regularly exceed speeds of over 200 mph. The record for the fastest speed of 216 mph achieved by a NASCAR stock car was set at the Talladega superspeedway. The high speed however leads to increased probability of crashes and accidents, so NASCAR imposed a rule of using 'restrictor plates' in all races held in Talladega. The use of restrictor plates reduces the maximum speed of the cars and results in very close encounters between drivers. The width of the track allows four and sometimes even five cars to fit in side by side, making the races extremely competitive. Drivers have to be careful as the slightest error can lead to fatal crashes. These extremely tight races make the Talladega 500 one of the most exciting and favorite races for fans in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. With a capacity of nearly 175,000 and excellent camping spots available, the Talladega 500 provides an exhilarating experience for spectators.
The Talladega 500 is a test of speed, skill as well as of strategic planning. Given the unpredictable and tough nature of the speedway, the fate of the drivers is often not in their own hands.
