Talladega Superspeedway, formerly known as Alabama International Motor Superspeedway (AIMS), is a motorsportscomplex located north of Talladega, Alabama.[1] It is located on the former Anniston Air Force Base in the small city of Lincoln. A tri-oval, the track was constructed in 1969 by the International Speedway Corporation, a business controlled by the France Family. Talladega is most known for its steep banking and the unique location of the start/finish line - located just past the exit to pit road. The track currently hosts NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series, Xfinity Series, and Camping World Truck Series. Talladega is the longest NASCAR oval with a length of 2.66-mile-long (4 km) tri-oval like the Daytona International Speedway, which is a 2.5-mile-long (4 km). At its peak, Talladega had a seating capacity of 175,000 spectators,[2] although its current capacity is 80,000 seats.[3]
