Confirm it was 1971. In fact it was, more specifically on the 16th May, (1971).
Event: Winston Cup 500.
Venue - Talladega (Known at the time as Alabama International Motor Speedway) :wink:

Never thought I would be able to help identify a NASCAR crash from over 40 years ago! :oops: Image

I had the same thoughts when indentifying the Sachs crash at Pocono.

I don't seem to have saved the original photo. Can I have it, please?

This looks very similar, but it's not the same crash. It's also from API. Perhaps the original ID was not quite correct? Otherwise I can't find anything on the API site that looks similar right now.

Dave hasn't been active for 4 years, but I am hoping someone else may have it.
