Talladega Superspeedway Hosts A Variety of Races
Home to an array of early American historical sites, and charming cities like Pelham, and Montgomery, Alabama yields a wealth of travel and tourism opportunity. In particular, Alabama is home to the Talladega Superspeedway.
The Sprint Cup Series is the highest level of competition within NASCAR, and Talladega Superspeedway hosts’ two Sprint Cup races every year – the Aaron’s 499, and the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500, in April and October, respectively.
While you’ll certainly enjoy the intensity and raw power of Sprint Cup races, don’t pass on the Nationwide Series. Although it is considered the “minor league” of NASCAR, the Nationwide Series puts on thrilling events and races, including the Aaron’s 312, hosted at Talladega Superspeedway, usually the last weekend of April.
Race fans from around the state, including nearby Leeds, make their way to Talladega Superspeedway in October for the Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola. One of the fall races on the Camping World Truck Series tour, Fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola began in 2006, when it was billed as the John Deere 250.
As a sports fan traveling through the Birmingham area, enjoy a NASCAR race at Talledega Superspeedway, then head over to the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame Museum for a tour.
