(TALLADEGA) Was there racing at Talladega Superspeedway Tuesday? No, but it sure looked like it as the official Talladega Superspeedway Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car for the GEICO 500/fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola weekend, October 17-19, led a host of Chevy Corvettes side-by-side around NASCAR’s biggest and baddest track.
As a part of the 2014 Gulf States Region Caravan, on its way to Bowling Green, KY, for the 20th anniversary of the National Corvette Museum, over 120 Corvettes were driven to Talladega to take a lap around the 2.66-mile Talladega Superspeedway. While at the track, the group, which represents Southern Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Northwest Florida, took a tour of the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.
NASCAR speeds back into Talladega Superspeedway October 17-19 for the GEICO 500 Sprint Cup Series race and fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola Camping World Truck Series event. NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track (record 88 lead changes in 188 laps), with the circuit’s steepest banking (33 degrees) and longest distance (2.66 miles), is also the most fun and fan-friendly, offering up hundreds of acres of free camping, amazing kids ticket prices and special offers for military members and college students. Talladega Superspeedway is NASCAR’s “Party Capital” thanks to the track’s infamous infield and world renowned Talladega Blvd. The historic venue has always worked hard to enhance the fan experience in every way and now features the most comfortable seats in motorsports, large video viewing boards (a new initiative planned for future implementation at all ISC tracks) lining the frontstretch and endless activities for fans throughout its event weekends.
