Without a Hitch!
  The story of Bill France Sr. and the Talladega driver boycott
It was a day that will never be forgotten, and was one where Talladega Superspeedway creator Big Bill France Sr., never flinched. On Saturday, September 13, 1969, the day before the first-ever Talladega 500 at the brand-new Alabama International Motor Speedway (today known as Talladega Superspeedway), more than 30 of the top drivers in NASCAR’s premier series decided to withdraw over “supposed” tire safety concerns at France’s 2.66-mile palace of speed. France, the then-president of NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation, was adamant the race would go on. And, it did, without a hitch.
