Talladega Superspeedway Shows Appreciation with Fan Salute
Talladega Superspeedway announced today a series of fan-appreciation initiatives coined the “Fan Salute”. The three-part rollout includes the formation of the ‘DEGA Club rewards program, a Fan Advisory Network and a Fan Hall of Fame.
“Our fans are the ones that make this sport so special,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “We are always looking for ways to reward them, whether it be with premium amenities or custom services. We are taking it one step further with our Fan Salute by making the fans an integral part of our team.”
The ‘DEGA Club, or Dual Event Gold Account Club is a rewards program for fans that renew Saturday and Sunday tickets to both race weekends at Talladega Superspeedway. Members of this special club will receive exclusive benefits such as early and express entry to their camping spot, a Wednesday infield Happy Hour hosted by Miller Lite, free entry to the infield Friday and Saturday following track activity for our grandstand guests and more as the program develops.
The Fan Advisory Network will give fans a direct line of communication with Superspeedway administration and vice-versa to better the overall guest experience at future events.
“This will allow us to bounce ideas off each other,” said Lynch. “It’s a way of making sure that every improvement we make at Talladega Superspeedway will have the most positive impact on our fans. It also allows them to bring ideas to the table that perhaps we hadn’t even thought about. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
The Fan Hall of Fame will be a way of honoring Talladega’s most passionate and beloved fans.
Each initiative will be rolled out in the coming months, beginning with the ‘DEGA Club. Stay tuned to www.talladegasuperspeedway.com for more details.

The local connection:
Six major NASCAR tracks are within a day’s drive of Tampa. That really doesn’t qualify a track as local, but when considering speed and good times – distance isn’t always an obstacle. With the proper definition somewhat distant racetracks become local if the enthusiasm of fans is calculated before miles are measured. Great destinations justify journeys.
Tampa local racetrack definition (Fan bias included):
Popular motorsports venues are considered local if they aren’t more than a 10 hour drive from Tampa.
NASCAR racetracks — [Miles] [Route] [Travel time by car]
Daytona International Speedway [140 miles] [I-75 E – 2 ½ hours]
Homestead-Miami Speedway [300 miles] [I-75 S – 5 hours]
Atlanta Motor Speedway [440 miles] [I-75 N – 7 hours]
Darlington Raceway [525 miles] [I-95 N – 9 hours]
Talladega Superspeedway [570 miles] [I-75 N – 9 ½ hours]
Charlotte Motor Speedway [600 miles] [I-95 N – 10 hours]
