This video includes two NASCAR races at Alabama International Motor Speedway in Talladega - a track designed for extremely high speeds, strategic use of drafting, and at the time racing at more than 190 miles per hour.
Original films of both the 1975 spring and summer NASCAR races at Talladega are now available to racing fans everywhere on this new full color, 50-minute film from "Rare Sportsfilms Inc"! This ones a must for Ford fans, as Buddy Baker, driving the #15 white Bud Moore Ford, wins both races, the spring race ending a two-year drought for Baker and a 3-plus year winless streak for Ford!
The 1975 "Winston 500" is a typical Talladega shootout, with 12 different drivers swapping the lead 51 times! Unfortunately, this is also the race in which a freak pit accident claims the life of Richard Pettys brother-in-law, Randy G. Owens. Another major incident of the race occurs with the Alabama Gangs Donnie Allison leading. On the 11th lap, Allison blows his engine, oiling the track, and behind him Benny Parsons, Carl Adams and Ferrel Harris all spin out. On lap 62, Ramo Stotts engine blows in a ball of fire, and Marty Robbins spins out trying to avoid Stott but is hit by James Hylton. Both accidents are re-shown in slo-motion. Throughout the race, incidents are shown involving others: Bobby Allison, Randy Tissot, Jim Vandiver and Cecil Gordon. On the 141st lap, Richard Petty pulls into the pits with a front wheel bearing on fire. As Petty gets out of his car, a high-pressure water tank explodes behind the wall, instantly killing Owens and injuring a crewman from another team. Baker leads the last 18 laps and blocks a last lap charge by David Pearson to win a close one!
Throughout the film of both races, youll see closeups of the drivers of the day: Petty, Bobby Allison, Pearson, Parsons and Lennie Pond, plus youll also hear what Cale Yarborough, Pearson, Dick Brooks and a young Darrell Waltrip think about racing at Talladega.
