A Brief Information about UAW GM Quality 500 NASCAR Racing
On an modest stretch of land suited for soybean farming located next to a couple of abandoned airport runways, Talladega Super speedway was built to be the biggest, fastest and most aggressive super speedway in the world, host of the UAW-Ford 500 race. Since Alabama International Motor Speedway (as it was called until 1989) opened its gates in September of 1969, the track has surpass every initial expectation in terms of sheer size, speed and ferocity of competition.
Talladega, Ala., was chosen from some possible sites in the Southeast, with the main criteria being accessibility of land, access to the interstate system and a population base of at least 20 million people within 300 miles. Anniston insurance executive Bill Ward, a UAW-Ford 500 race driver and fan himself, helped NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation founder William H.G. (Bill) France find the land in Alabama, following a casual conversation with France in Daytona in the mid-1960s. we provide cheap UAW-Ford 500 Tickets you can enjoy the UAW-Ford 500 racing here- buy from us cheap UAW-Ford 500 Tickets online.
Ward found what he thought was the ideal site in north Talladega County near an airport that the U.S. Government had sold to the City of Talladega after World War II. Ward set up a meeting with then-Talladega Mayor James Hardwick and other city officials, and in a restaurant in Anniston in 1966, France got the group to think the idea of putting a major track on the site. After a trip to the UAW-Ford 500 to watch first-hand the potential economic impact, the group was sold.
Several obstacles had to be conquer, one of which was financing. With France as the guiding force, however, construction began on the 2,000-acre site on May 23, 1968, with the first race being the UAW-Ford 500 Touring race on Saturday, September 13, 1969. Ken Rush drove his Camaro to Victory Lane in that event. The next day, Richard Brickhouse won the first UAW-Ford 500 race, the Talladega 500 (now known as the EA SPORTS 500), edging Jim Vandiver and Ramo Stott.
