Where is Talladega Superspeedway?
The Talladega Superspeedway will host two of the four “restrictor plate”races, where engine power is throttled with air flow restrictors to keep speeds below 200 mph (320 km/h).
The high speeds are only possible due to the width of such routes as Daytona and Talladega, although the distance in Alabama is even the larger of the two: 2.66 miles (4.28 km) is a lap on the Superspeedway long and the curves are overhanging at 33°. Otherwise, only Daytona (31°) and Bristol Motor Speedway (28-30°) can approach this insane Banking.
Rusty Wallace impressively confirmed the consequences of these dimensions in 2004: in a Test without an air volume limiter, he reached a top speed of 228 mph (367 km/h) on the opposite straight, resulting in a lap average of 221 mph (355 km / h). But this is not the official track record, because it was not set during a race weekend.
