Huntsville Speedway – Big names race here!

Huntsville Speedway is a 1/4 mile paved oval located in Huntsville, Alabama.

The speedway has a rich history beginning with Petty capturing the only Grand National race (which is now the Nextel Cup circuit) ever held at the track on Aug. 8, 1962. Petty won the Rocket City 200 in a 1962 Plymouth, leading all but two laps. Finishing second was Bob Welbourn in a 1962 Pontiac, followed by Jim Paschal and Buck Baker. Others in the race included Buck’s son, Buddy Baker, Joe Weatherly, Ned Jarrett, Friday Hassler, Nero Steptoe, G.C. Spencer, Joe Lee Johnson and a very young modified driver by the name of Bobby Allison.
