Talladega Superspeedway - Lincoln, Alabama
My Tripometer: 1 Hour * 1.5 Miles * +50 Feet
From Birmingham Alabama, take I-20 East. About 30 minutes down the road you will pass the small town of Lincoln. Lookout for the Talladega Superspeedway sign. If you blink, you'll miss it. Exit 168 on State Route 77. Head south and make an immediate left turn on County Road 399. Drive a couple miles down that and then turn right somewhere toward the track. It was a complete ghost town and a very rainy morning. A perfect stop before heading back to Atlanta...
How do we get in?
We drove around and slithered our way to here
We hiked our way to the stands
Can you believe I had to wait in line!!!
We got lost trying to drive out, but we made it to the other side
More Track Views!
This was a special stop for the kids. They love the movie Talladega Nights, and now they got to step foot in the stands, not on the track. They liked this better than Daytona. Okay, next stop, Atlanta. Hmm, maybe not. The small town of Talladega is just south of here. Nah, boring. The Talladega National Forest is to the east. I bet you didn't know there was a National Forest named after a race track, or maybe it's the other way around. Let's go find a real hike...
