The ’Next Gen’ car that fans will see in the GEICO 500, is a collaboration of the brightest engineering minds in racing and the automotive industry. It is designed to give the drivers greater control and will put an emphasis back on race strategies, team personnel and vehicle setups while returning the ‘stock car’ look to NASCAR. The cars are set to put on great racing for fans, incorporate relevant technology and look more like street version vehicles.
The one-of-a-kind Talladega Garage Experience, which gives fans the chance to be immersed into the sport of NASCAR like never before, will, once again, be open to fans.

In addition, there’s the unique 35,000 square foot “Big Bill’s” covered Open Air Social Club, complete with ample seating, a bar and a 41-foot diagonal video screen, and the opportunity to be a part of Ruoff Victory Lane, plus lots more.
