“one of the first races of the NASCAR Grand Touring circuit”
Huntsville was one of the first races of the NASCAR Grand Touring circuit, which featured the Grand American-type cars like Camaros, Mustangs and Firebirds in 1969. Tiny Lund, who was later killed racing at Talladega, won the 400-lapper with Buck Baker second, Frank Sessons third and Al Staub fourth. Pete Hamilton, who went on to win the Talladega 500 a few years later, also competed in the race, along with Richard Childress, who is now the car owner for Winston Cup defending champion Dale Earnhardt.
I had a great and fun time with the whole family here at Huntsville Speedway. There was a huge crowd which made the experience more fun and crazy. I love the energy of the crowd. The fans were all cheering for their bets and it was fun. The track is small but a lot of action going.
