Danica Patrick Joins the Talladega Experience
TALLADEGA, AL – The driver lineup in the Talladega Experience for the Camping World RV Sales 500 on Sunday, Oct. 20, at Talladega Superspeedway keeps getting better and better.
NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track has announced that NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Rookie of the Year candidate Danica Patrick will join Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Denny Hamlin for separate question/answer sessions with fans who purchase the popular Talladega Experience package, NASCAR’s premier hospitality venue.
Located just outside Talladega’s historical frontstretch where countless races have been won and lost at the 2.66-mile facility, the Talladega Experience is just one of the many ticket upgrades available to Talladega Superspeedway ticket holders. It is designed for the FAN, with the ultimate goal of providing each guest with a world-class experience and memories that last a lifetime.
Those memories come from putting fans as close to the competitors as possible just hours before the drop of the green flag. Patrick, the Dayton 500 pole sitter, ran consistently in the top half of the field in her Talladega Sprint Cup debut in May before being involved in a late-race accident.
In addition to the up-close and personal access during hospitality visits by Hamlin, Earnhardt, and Patrick, the Talladega Experience offers other “can’t miss” opportunities, which include unlimited catering and beverages, pre-race pit road tours inside the track, access to the start-finish line during driver introductions, VIP parking, event souvenirs, and more. The package, which must be accompanied by a Frontstretch Grandstand or Tower ticket, is $145 and can be purchased by calling 877-Go2-DEGA or visiting www.talladegasuperspeedway.com.
“We are excited to announce Danica Patrick’s involvement with the Talladega Experience,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “She loves racing here at Talladega and loves the fans. As a result, she has become a fan favorite here, and giving our guests this unique access into her day leading up to the green flag will be a huge opportunity. True Danica fans and true race fans will not want to miss this!”
Other ticket upgrades available during the Camping World RV Sales 500 weekend include Pre-Race Pit Passes, Fan Suites, the Paddock Club, and the Acceleration Package. For additional information, fans are encouraged to call 877-Go2-DEGA or visit www.talladegasuperspeedway.com
