Want to drive your car around Talladega Superspeedway?

   Race fans will have the opportunity on Saturday, July 26, to drive their own personal car around the high banks of Talladega Superspeedway during the track's “Fan Track Drive,” a fundraising event for the American Red Cross. 

   The “Fan Track Drive” event will run from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. ET and guests can drive their passenger vehicle two laps around the Talladega Superspeedway for a $50 contribution. Each vehicle will closely follow one of the speedway's emergency services vehicles, which will lead the field at highway speed. 

   Currently, there are no other fan “drive” events planned for the remainder of 2014 at Talladega. 

   In addition to the “drive,” guests can take a high-speed ride around Talladega in one of the speedway’s official pace cars – the Ford Mustang or the Chevrolet Camaro – at a cost of $100. All money for rides will be directly donated to the American Red Cross Talladega-St Clair Chapter.
