    When you are asked to go at the speed of light, you will know that you are at the Talladega Superspeedway which is a motorsports complex. The tri-oval track took about $4 million to construct and was opened in 1969. Ever since then, it has been one glorious event after another and the track is always filled to its capacity of 175,000 which however, will be reduced to 88,000 in 2014. Nevertheless, the track has a good track record and hosts events like Sprint Cup, Nationwide and the Camping World Truck series. The fastest record was set by Rusty Wallace in 2004 by going at a speed of 216.309 mph in a NASCAR stock car which is the best ever to be seen at a closed oval track.

    History

    In hopes to create a longer and faster track than the Daytona International Speedway, the Talladega Superspeedway was constructed in 1969 under the name of Alabama International Motor Speedway. After its name change due to its location in Talladega, Alabama, this 2.66 mile oval motorsports complex became well-known for its steep banking and unique placement of the start and finish line. It is home to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (Aaron’s 499 and Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500), NASCAR Nationwide Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with its seating capacity of 175,000.
