The Amp Energy 500 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup stock car race held at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Alabama. The Amp Energy 500 is also one of four races currently run with restrictor plates, the others being the Aaron's 499, the Coke Zero 400, and the Daytona 500. Through 1996, the race was normally held in early August or late July. In 1997, it was moved, after overwhelming fans' requests, to early October due to the uncomfortably hot summer temperatures in the Alabama area.

In 1998, the name of the race was swapped with that of the spring race. The fall race became known as the Winston 500 for a few years in order to promote the Winston No Bull 5 program.
