Hueytown was home to one of the dominant racing groups in NASCAR, the Alabama Gang. The city's main thoroughfare, Allison-Bonnett Memorial Drive, takes its name from drivers Bobby Allison, Donnie Allison, Davey Allison, Clifford Allison, and Neil Bonnett.I like the schools, and great jobs. I feel safe and its still growing.

I have lived in Hueytown for about three years now and I consider this an excellent place to live and raise a family. I have children who attend the schools here, and I have been very impressed with the curriculum as well as the commitment that the teachers and administrators show on a daily basis. They truly care about the children and strive to offer the best education and mentoring possible. It is comforting to know that the Hueytown Police Department is just as committed and dedicated to excellence. Feeling safe in my neighborhood is very important to me and my family. I enjoy the quiet atmosphere of my neighborhood, along with the convenience of having everything I may need just a short drive down the road.
I love the town. I have been living in Hueytown for close to 6 years. The crime in Hueytown is barely happening, because most of it is happening in Birmingham or Tuscaloosa. It is very peaceful. The only crime that is possible is shoplifting or sabotage. I would want to recommend this town for anyone wanting to move somewhere in Alabama.
