Talladega does 225mph in Mile

Faster than a Daytona?

Last time we told you about the Arkansas Mile rivalry between the custom built NASCAR Dodge Daytona and Talladega cars. At that time the Daytona was better sorted out and the fastest. This time, the crew continued to work on the Talladega’s suspension in an effort to make a safer and faster run. Did it work? Are they done?

Check out this video of the follow up Talladega runs and the driver’s comments about the experience. His words are worth the watch!


Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
