In 1970, Buddy Baker penned a story on how to get around Alabama International Motor Speedway, today known as Talladega Superspeedway. The driver of the No. 6 Dodge Daytona, owned by Cotton Owens, was a force throughout the year, including at Talladega’s 2.66-mile venue. Baker would eventually win three straight ’Dega races in his career – a sweep in 1975 and the spring event in 1976, and the last triumph in 1980. The greatest race track in the world celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. (Photo credit: ISC Images and Archives via Getty Images)
