By Rich Foust

No, it’s not the plate that you get at the salad bar…

It all started with Talladega in 1987, when Bobby Allison lost control of his car and went airborne into the catch fence, with his car traveling at a speed in excess of 200 mph.

The top 35 rule came into effect in 2005 and the rule automatically locks those top 35 in points in the weekend’s race no matter where they qualify. The rule also locks the top 35 in points from the previous year into the first five races of the season starting at the Daytona 500. Continue reading
