Construction has begun for Talladega Superspeedway’s new Finish Line Premium RV area, located just past the start-finish line near the entrance to Turn 1, where fans have a bird’s-eye view to experience the thrill of the track’s wild checkered flag finishes from the comfort of their RV. Fans have already made a statement as this prime real estate area is filling up fast and limited spots remain for the motorsports tripleheader weekend, April 26-28, featuring the GEICO 500.
These RV upgrades and amenities are part of the $50 million Transformation Infield Project at the historic 2.66-mile venue, which will also celebrate its 50th Anniversary this year. The Finish Line Premium RV reserved area will add 69 paved RV camping spots perfect for both motorhomes and fifth wheels. Each spot will be 21 feet by 50 feet in size and provide full hookups to power, water and sewer. The area will also be secured and have designated quiet times.
An all-inclusive package is available for campers who reserve a slot in the Finish Line Premium RV area for the upcoming weekend, highlighted by two 5-day infield admission passes and two Sunday Pre-Race Pit Pass Upgrades. These give guests access to an array of activities to see like the Drivers Meeting red carpet entry, the Pre-Race Driver Q&A session and Driver Introductions.
Guests may purchase up to eight additional infield admissions per account, including ones that come with a Sunday Pre-Race Pit Pass Upgrade. Buyers will also receive a camping placard, one tow vehicle pass and the option to purchase a maximum of two infield parking spots per account in the “Infield Hospitality Parking” lot.
When the 2019 fall race weekend rolls around, guests will have their first chance to explore the new interactive Talladega Garage Experience. The area will allow fans to view teams, cars and inspection stations up-close in the new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup garage, as well as relax in a new 35,000-square-foot Open Air Club (includes a 41-foot video board and bar), and enjoy Wi-Fi, concession and souvenir stands, a guest services center and first-aid station.
Also for the October ‘19 weekend, guests in the Finish Line Premium RV area will receive two 3-day Talladega Garage Experience Passes in lieu of two Sunday Pre-Race Pit Pass Upgrades (in spring) and can choose to upgrade any additional admissions with Talladega Garage Experience Passes. All other benefits will remain the same.
Fans can reserve a Finish Line Premium RV spot for $2,600 per race or $5,200 for the season in Row 1 (sold out for the 2019 spring & fall events), while slots in Row 2 cost $2,500 for a race and $5,000 for the season.
Construction is well underway for the new Turn 3 Oversized Vehicle Tunnel that will open in the spring. The 2-lane underpass will be large enough to accommodate all RVs, including those in the Finish Line Premium area, race team haulers as well as track tram vehicles (to take fans who have both infield admission and grandstand seating) to enter and exit the track simultaneously with ease. It will be open 24 hours during event weekends. New Infield Shower Trailers are also set to be completed for spring 2019.
