NASCAR Sprint Cup Series: Good Sam Club 500
In 1998, the name of the race was swapped with that of the Talladega spring race. The fall race became known as the Winston 500 for three years in order to promote the Winston No Bull 5 program.
During the driver introductions in 2005, Ricky Bobby and other characters were introduced in order to shoot scenes for the movie Talladega Nights.
This race has been on average the most consistently competitive in NASCAR history. It has broken 40 official lead changes in 1971, 1973, 1975-8, 1983-4, 1989, 2000, and every year since 2003; in 14 of these, the race exceeded 50 lead changes, most recently in 2013 with 52, and in 2010 the race reached 87 lead changes, one short of the motorsports record set in April. The 2012 race, run on October 7, featured 54 lead changes and a 25-car crash on the final lap.
