A Look Back In Talladega History: The 200 MPH Field
Buddy Baker became the first driver to break the 200 mph mark at Talladega Superspeedway during a test session in 1970. Twelve years later, Benny Parsons would become the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver to break 200 mph in qualifying prior to the 1982 Winston 500 (now Aaron’s 499). From that day forward speeds at Talladega would increase exponentially, as only four years later Talladega Superspeedway would be home to the first all-200 mph field in NASCAR history.
