“We are so excited to welcome back race fans for a safe and exciting tripleheader of racing action that only Talladega Superspeedway can provide,” said Brian Crichton, President of the 2.66-mile, 33-degree-banked facility. “There is no other entertainment venue that offers fans the experience, as well as the most incredible racing on the planet, that Talladega does. We can’t wait!”

The greatest race track in the world will host the Ag-Pro 300 for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and General Tire 200 for the ARCA Menards Series on Saturday, April 24 before the weekend culminates with the GEICO 500 for the NASCAR Cup Series on Sunday, April 25.

Sunday’s anchor event, the GEICO 500, is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. CT start. Justin Haley won both of the track’s NASCAR Xfinity Series races last year, including the fall Ag-Pro 300 while Ryan Blaney is the defending champion of the GEICO 500. Reigning ARCA Champion and local favorite, Bret Holmes from nearby Munford, goes for his Talladega Triumph in the General Tire 200.

Kids 12 and younger are admitted free (with a paying adult) to grandstands/towers on Saturday, while kids’ tickets start at $15.00 for Sunday grandstands/towers.

The reduced capacity is due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and continues in accordance with enhanced safety protocols and procedures to provide a safe environment for fans, competitors, employees and industry personnel.

In addition to encouraging distancing throughout the venue, all guests will be screened before entering the facility at staggered entry times and will be required to wear face coverings. Multiple handwashing and hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the operating areas and entrances and a “clean team” of staff, clearly identified for guests, will be cleaning or disinfecting at all times.
