TALLADEGA CRASH VIDEOS

Talladega Superspeedway has been a source of controversy since it played host to its first race in 1969. On the eve of the inaugural Talladega 500, 37 drivers led by Richard Petty left the track, leaving Big Bill France to scramble and fill the starting spots with a motley assortment of drivers.

PEP BOYS AUTO 500 CRASHES
