TALLADEGA, Ala. - The anticipation is growing for Talladega Superspeedway's NASCAR Playoff doubleheader weekend, Oct. 12-14, and the most coveted real estate in motorsports is filling up fast in the iconic infield. Officials at NASCAR's most competitive track announced today that fewer than 30 reserved RV camping spots remain.
Fans are encouraged to call 855-518-RACE (7223) to reserve their space, or visit www.talladegasuperspeedway.com\camping. The doubleheader NASCAR Playoff weekend features the "wildcard" 1000Bulbs.com 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) event, the second race (of three) in the Round of 12 in the MENCS Playoffs, as well as the pivotal Talladega 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) event. It will serve as the final race in the Round of 8 in the NCWTS Playoffs, where the field of eligible title contenders will be cut from eight to six at the checkered flag.
The infield provides an incredible social atmosphere that features the Friday Night "Big One on the Blvd." driver/fan event where some of the top stars of the sport parade down the world-famous Talladega Blvd. before overseeing fan competitions, as well as the traditional Saturday Night Infield Concert.
Areas that have a few remaining RV spots include: GECKO Frontrunner's Club I (a prime area inside Turn 4), Finish Line RV II (located past the start-finish line near Turn 1) and GEICO Grounds Green (a perfect spot to catch the on-track action inside Turns 3 & 4). There are also reserved areas in the infield for tent/car camping, and they are located in the following: GEICO Grounds Blue (located close to Turns 1 and 2) and GEICO Grounds Yellow (near Turn 3).
"We have sold out our RV infield parking spaces for the last seven consecutive NASCAR event weekends," said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. "And, it continues to happen earlier and earlier. The notorious infield is a great place to be for our social activities and is exemplary throughout sports. We encourage fans to reserve their spots now while spaces still remain. We can't wait to welcome everyone back to enjoy the best racing and experience on the planet."
The weekend kicks off on Friday with time trials for the Talladega 250 and then gets into high gear on Saturday with the drop of the green flag for the Talladega 250 (noon CDT) followed by Foodland/Food Giant Qualifying for the 1000Bulbs.com 500 at 3:35 p.m. CDT. Kids 12 and younger get in FREE both Friday (as part of FREE Friday) and Saturday.
