NASCAR TalladegaSuperspeedway After having races on almostevery type of track thus far into the season, the Nextel cup teams now prepare for the scariest trackof all, Talladega Superspeedway. What is tough for the drivers, makes it all thatmore exciting for the fans. The combination of speed, the probability of danger, andlots of passing make this race a fan favorite. That appeal of seeing great racing mixed with the spectacular end over end wrecks has been drawing fans to the little Alabama town for 38 years. In the last few decades, the fans have also been able to rely on the possibility that their favorite driver would win a race there. The late Dale Earnhardt Sr wasn’t always a fan favorite, but they grew to love his style and it soon turned into legendary status when he became the chief villain against the young upstart, Jeff Gordon. The anti-Gordon fans loved it and ate the rivalry up. Earnhardt went on to win 10 Cup races at Talladega, still a track record. NASCAR’s largest track and second restrictor plate race of 2008 is always exciting. There are new restrictions at both Talladega and Daytona, NASCAR drivers started to go to fast at Talladega, so they had to do something to slow them down. That’s why we have restrictor plates now at both Talladega and Daytona. The plate is made of aluminum and has four holes drilled into it. They are placed in between the carburetor and intake manifold to reduce the rate at which fuel and air gointo the engines combustion chamber, which reduces horsepower and slows the car down.The cars still go fast but it takes them a few laps to get up over 190 mph. If the platewasn’t on one of today’s cars, speeds would reach well over 225 mph.
