Sunday revs things up in a big way. Everyone will convoy their cars from Alexander City to Talladega Super Speedway. This year is a special year for the Aero Warriors 5oth Anniversary and the Talladega Super Speedway’s 50th Anniversary! We will not be allowed on the track this year. This year the Speedway is unveiling a brand new 50 million dollar infield and we will be the first to be inside front and center. This will be a great honor for all Aero Warriors. Here is a note from the track.
Be a part of Talladega Superspeedway’s 50th Anniversary October 13! Your historic car will be parked in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Garage and you can witness the Cup race just inside the track with an up-close look as the cars come out of Turn 4. In addition, you will be able to be a part of debut of the one-of-a-kind Talladega Garage Experience, the center point of the track’s “Transformation” Infield Project that will allow fans to be immersed into the sport of NASCAR and will feature “up-close” access, interactive attractions and enhanced amenities for fans. The TGE will feature an open-air club with garage viewing of the teams prepping the race cars, new Gatorade Victory Lane, Wi-Fi, social areas, etc. Your cars will be able to be viewed by fans from not only the stands, but also from those who have TGE passes. This garage is the original garage from which the aero cars made their debut. Indeed a special day awaits the Aero warriors.
We will be receiving specific instructions about how we will enter into the new complex. When we have the directions we will immediately share with you.
