Statement from TSS chairman Grant Lynch

   Following an extensive track review with International Speedway Corporation (ISC), NASCAR and ARCA, Talladega Superspeedway will add SAFER Barrier to its existing barrier system in advance of the May 1-3 NASCAR weekend. The new SAFER barrier will be placed in three locations along the inside wall at entrances to pit road, Turn 1 and Turn 3. Talladega Superspeedway will continue to review its safety initiatives and provide updates as circumstances warrant.

   “We are committed to making Talladega Superspeedway a safe environment for drivers as well as our fans. Safety is our top priority and we will continue to collaborate with ISC, NASCAR and ARCA on any future safety enhancements," Lynch said.
