Talladega Superspeedway

Talladega Superspeedway, Talladega Alis a racing complex located near Talladega, Alabama. Located on the site of the former Anniston Air Force Base, it was constructed by International Speedway Corporation in 1968. Talladega is a virtual twin to Daytona International Speedway , however Talladega is .16 miles longer and the location of the start/finish line is closer to turn one than at Daytona. Talladega Superspeedway is the longest track in the NASCAR series with a length of 2.66 miles. The fastest lap ever recorded in NASCAR was at Talladega when Rusty Wallace was clocked at 216 MPH during a radio test. Because this was not an officially sanctioned NASCAR event, his time will not show in the record books. Bill Elliott still holds the fastest official speed in NASCAR when he was clocked at 212.8 MPH in qualifying. Talladega has a seating capacity of 175,000.
