Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

Talldega Superspeedway is planning a $50 million renovation of its infield facilities, which will include a new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series garage with 44 stalls, new concession, souvenir and restroom facilities and expanded camping areas.

The project, officially called Transformation – The Talladega Superspeedway Infield Project, will consist of two phases and begin immediately after the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and Camping World Truck Series visit this fall, and is scheduled to end in October 2019 in time for the track’s 50th anniversary.

New broadcast booths and NASCAR operations center will be built above the tri-oval, and the media center will be expanded and renovated.

For fans, 300 new RV parking spots will be added near the start/finish line and the Alabama Gang Superstretch, with power and water hookups, and there will be new infield shower options in turns 1 and 2. A new tunnel is being built under Turn 3 for easier traffic access.

The new Garage Fan Zone Experience ticket package will be available in one-, two- or three-day increments, which will allow access to pit road pre-race, as well as viewing walkway access to the new MENCS garage, a 35,000-square-foot Open Air Club with wi-fi, a bar and a 41-foot video board, and an up-close view of Victory Lane.

Pricing for the new amenities are still being determined, and special business packages will be available.

The track is planning to host more local events to further make use of the new facilities. In the words of the track website, renovations “will enhance our current fans’ visit to this historic track and be more than ever a showcase tourist destination for new fans and entertainment seekers in the future.”

The CWTS Talladega 250 will be held Saturday, Oct. 13, at 1 p.m. ET, with TV coverage on FOX. The MENCS 1000Bulbs.com 500 follows Sunday, Oct. 14 at 2 p.m. ET, with TV coverage on NBC.

The only thing that will be enhanced are the ticket prices for the “experience”.

In the past, Talladega spent millions to build luxury boxes. Now they are spending more millions on the “infield experience.” But not a penny to reduce the banking and allow the cars to actually RACE unrestricted at this track. This is no more a racetrack than the Roman Coliseum was a sports venue.

What a load of BS!

Two things in play here. Nscar/ISC/Frances have a lot of money or access to money and they aren’t going to really change anything.
