AAA Texas 500 History
The AAA Texas 500 was founded
in 2005 as a replacement for the popular Mountain Dew Southern 500 and soon grew to be one of the most eagerly anticipated
events of the season. From 2005 through 2009 the race was known as the Dickies 500 before changing its name to the AAA Texas
500. During the competition drivers speed around the circuit for 334 laps and a total of 501 miles before the winner is crowned.
There was originally some backlash towards the AAA Texas 500 from traditional race fans who felt that in replacing the Mountain
Dew Southern 500 the event had ruined the Sprint Series Grand Slam, but the AAA Texas 500 quickly earned respect from NASCAR
fans of all stripes. See what all the fuss is about for yourself by getting AAA Texas 500 tickets from StubHub.

of the engines, and the screeching tires as they hit a turn all make for an experience that borderlines on sensory overload

movie Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby where Ricky Bobby finishes the race driving in reverse. Although it was
supposed to be the AAA Texas 500, the scene was actually filmed at the Charlotte Motor Speedway whose wall was painted to
represent Texas for the film.
