A historic feat was achieved in the three tiers of NASCAR Racing at Talladega Superspeedway this past weekend.
The NASCAR weekend at Talladega Superspeedway didn’t go as planned as NASCAR had to extend a day due to the rain.
The Truck Series was the only series to be completed as per the scheduled laps, with both Xfinity and Cup Series had to be cut short. The Xfinity Series was shortened as there were no lights to race in the dark environment.
As for the Cup Series that raced on Monday instead of Sunday, the race was cut short due to the rain, which was also the cause for postponing the race for a day.
While the races in the three tiers of NASCAR finished did not finish under normal circumstances, the weekend however will make its mark in the NASCAR history.
It was the first time in the history of NASCAR that the three winners in the three tires were first-time winners – Tate Fogleman in the Truck Series, Brandon Brown in the Xfinity Series and Bubba Wallace in the Cup Series.
The first weekend in @NASCAR history to crown three first-time winners at one track. ☝️x3

The latest of the Series to be introduced among the three series in the NASCAR competition is the Truck Series in 1995. So, it marked the first time in 26 years that the feat was achieved.
