Talladega Superspeedway (formerly Alabama International Motor Speedway) is a motorsports complex located north of Talladega, Alabama, USA. It s on the former Anniston Air Force Base just outside the small city of Lincoln. Talladega is most known for its steep banking and unique location of the start/finish line – which is closer to turn one than at Daytona.
Talladega Superspeedway lives up to its name – of all the closed-circuit motorsports facilities in the world where sanctioned auto races are held, it is the fastest. Constructed by the France family’s International Speedway Corporation ten years after Daytona International Speedway, Talladega was built slightly longer a 2.66 miles and with steeper 330degree banking, which guaranteed record-setting speeds.
