What’s Happening?

To drivers, Talladega Superspeedway may be the most daunting track on the NASCAR Schedule, but the track is a favorite of both fans in the stands and the campgrounds. Here is everything to expect from NASCAR’s official camping notebook.

  • Talladega Superspeedway opened in 1969 as Alabama International Motor Speedway. A sister track to Daytona International Raceway, it is slightly larger than its 2.5-mile counterpart in Florida. Talladega is officially 2.66 miles long and features those high banks expected of a superspeedway alongside a unique feature with the finish line being placed just outside the tri-oval at the entrance to turn one.
  • Talladega Superspeedway has hosted the NASCAR Cup Series twice yearly since 1970, with one spring and one fall race. The NASCAR Xfinity Series began racing at Talladega in 1992 and began a two-race schedule at the track in 2020. The ARCA Menards Series began racing at the track in 1979 and does so once yearly alongside the Craftsman Truck Series, which started racing at the facility in 2006.

Amenities & Highlights

Talladega Superspeedway has become known for its infield activities and atmosphere on race weekends, which are supplemented by the great amenities supplied by the track.

The nightlife at Talladega, just like the racing, has become a selling point of the track’s race weekends, with many highlights making their way across social media. In response, Talladega features typical campgrounds and campgrounds with quiet hours for those looking for more tame evenings at the track.

Talladega also features a Saturday Night Infield Concert alongside the ordinary infield entertainment. For those who don’t camp in the infield, the track offers a tram service so campers can easily make their way there. The track also has vendors for campers to prevent the need to leave the track.

The track also offers free camping in select lots outside the track. Like most tracks, Talladega welcomes pets to the campgrounds.

  • Showers and restrooms in select campgrounds
  • Vendors for services like ice, water, RV repairs, and more
  • Access to the Saturday Night Infield Concert for infield campers and Sunday ticket holders
  • Pets Permitted (must be supervised and on a leash)
  • Trams available during select hours for transport around the track
  • Quiet hours in select campgrounds

Campground Details

The campgrounds have lots ranging from 18×40 up to 20×50. These lots are also inside and outside the track. During race week, those outside the track open as early as Monday, with those lots inside the track opening on Wednesday.

Breakdown

  • Free camping in select outside campgrounds for Sunday NASCAR Cup Series ticket holders (first come, first served)
  • Outside campgrounds open Monday of race week
