Alabama State Troopers Use Talladega Superspeedway For High-Speed Pursuit Training
Troopers used Talladega Superspeedway last week to train a class of 18 recruits in high-speed pursuit and defensive driving techniques. "What's great about training at Talladega Superspeedway is the vast amount of usable space allows us to set up a course that simulates real obstacles and road conditions Troopers are likely to find on the highway," said Sgt. Keith Jackson. TALLADEGA, Ala. - Alabama State
