Bobby Allison crashes at Talladega Superspeedway, leading NASCAR to develop restrictor plates for the Daytona, and Talledega races the next year.
Back when it opened in I think '69, the cars were running over 200 mph and the drivers getting wicked headaches. They brought in a team from NASA at the cape and discovered the track surface was causing vibrations over 200mph that were killing brain cells wholesale. They had to repaved the whole fucking track before the first race. I swear it's true or my name isn't Ralph.
