“We are excited to welcome Coolray to the Talladega Superspeedway family,” said track head Brian Crichton. “Their brand assortment and services are second to none, and we are proud to be their partner going forward.”
The Talladega Superspeedway will host three NASCAR Playoffs, culminating on Sunday, October 2 at the YellaWood 500, the second race in the Round 12 of the NASCAR Cup Series, and will feature a NASCAR ‘Next Gen’ car. Bubba Wallace is the defending champion for the YellaWood 500, which is set to start at 1:00 PM CST.
Saturday, October 1 will feature a Double Head with a Chevy Silverado 250 (NASCAR Camping World Truck Series) at 11:30 a.m. CDT and a Sparks 300 (NASCAR Xfinity Series) at 3:00 p.m. CT. Brandon Brown last year won the Sparks 300 while Tate Fogleman took top honors in the Chevy Silverado 250.
A qualifying driver win in the playoffs in any of the October triple events will advance to the next round of their NASCAR Qualifier Series.
Multi-platinum singer-songwriter Chase Rice, a former Hendrick Motorsports dig crew member, will take to stage at NASCAR’s “Party Capital” for the traditional Saturday Night gala. The best part about the concert is that admission is free with the purchase of a race ticket on Sunday for the YellaWood 500 race. Breakout Country artist Bailey Zimmerman will open the much-anticipated tonight.
Guests attending the weekend can immerse themselves in the sport of NASCAR by being part of the Talladega Garage Experience, which gives the ability to get up close to NASCAR’s top drivers and teams via a fan walkway under the same roof as the NASCAR Cup Series garage bays.
