Geico 500 Schedule

Talladega Superspeedway is always popping each and every summer for the Geico 500, which is a tradition that isn't likely to change any time in the near future. Talladega is one of the very best racetracks in the entire world, though you're not exactly going to really understand or appreciate that sitting at home wondering what the atmosphere of the big race is like. Potentially more than any sport, NASCAR is one of those sports that you have to see first-hand to get the full experience, as some things you're just never going to capture at home no matter how enormous your television is. The Geico 500 changed its name this season from the Camping World RV Sales 500, which was the name of the race in 2013. Last year Jamie McMurray took home the title thanks to an average speed of nearly 179 miles per hour. Murray took home the win for the Earnhardt Ganassi Racing team, and will be back in 2014 looking to take home the victory. This year's race is set to take place on October 19th and will feature some of the biggest drivers in the game today. Be there at Talladega Superspeedway this season to enjoy all that comes with a top-end NASCAR race.


Geico 500 History

When the Sprint Cup Series comes to Lincoln, Alabama at the Talladega Superspeedway, drivers are either trying to widen their points lead or gain ground when it counts most. Since 1969, the Geico 500 which has gone by a few different names over the years, has been speeding around the high-banked curves of one of the most famous race tracks in the country, and the world. It has a history of being one of the hardest-fought races of the season, though it's been the Earnhardts who have really dominated like absolutely none other. Only two different drivers have ever won this one at least three times – and, you guessed it, both were in the Earnhardt family. Dale won this one a ridiculous seven different times and Dale Jr. took up the torch and won it three times on his own. You never know when you're going to see the next great historic race that will be the talk of Talladega, making it always a good idea to pick up a few seats and see the action for yourself.


Fan Experience

The roar at a NASCAR event can be almost intoxicating on its own, as there is something extra special about hearing the best drivers around zip around the race track while the energy of the crowd reaches unbelievable levels coming down the home stretch. These are the best drivers in the business, and they're always ready to entertain the fans in the stands. It doesn't get any better than seeing one of your favorite racers cross the finish line before all the rest. Be there to hear the purr of the engines and the cars go whipping by as the top racers scream around corners, draft and gun it down the home stretch to make their run up the leaderboard. NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in the country for a reason, and even though some sports can be neatly contained by the TV, NASCAR's scope makes it a sport you have to be a part of to understand.


Geico 500 Trivia

Who was the first driver to ever win this event?

The answer is Richard Brickhouse, who crossed the finish line first in 1969. Back then this race was known as the Talladega 500, and Brickhouse took home the victory for the Ray Nichels teams. Brickhouse was able to finish the 500-mile race in about three hours and fifteen minutes, and averaged a speed of 153 miles per hour throughout the race. This was Brickhouse's only win at this event.
