The 1969 NASCAR Grand National season brought tensions between drivers and NASCAR officials over safety, speed, and money. Amidst the problems, the Alabama International Motor Speedway opened and hosted the first Talladega 500 in 1969, a race that had no crashes or spin outs. For the results of the inaugural Talladega 500, along with all 54 races of the 1969 NASCAR Grand National season, see the chart below.
