Denny Hamlin to Join Dale Jr. in Talladega Experience
TALLADEGA, AL – Fans who attend the Talladega Experience during the Camping World RV Sales 500 (Oct. 20) will be given a double dose of NASCAR star-power, as Denny Hamlin joins Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the celebrity appearance lineup at NASCAR’s finest hospitality venue race morning. The driver of the No. 11 FedEx Toyota will be on hand for a question and answer session that all fans are invited to be a part of.
Located just outside Talladega’s historical frontstretch where countless races have been won and lost at the 2.66-mile facility, the Talladega Experience is just one of the many Camping World RV Sales 500 ticket upgrades available to Talladega Superspeedway ticket holders. It is designed for the FAN, with the ultimate goal of providing each guest with a world-class experience and memories that will last a lifetime. Other celebrities scheduled to appear in the Talladega Experience will be announced in the near future.
In addition to the up-close, personal access to both question and answer sessions with Hamlin and Earnhardt, Jr., guests of the Talladega Experience will be treated to unlimited delicious catering and beverages, pre-race pit road tours inside the track, access to the start-finish line during driver introductions, VIP parking, event souvenirs, and more.
Hamlin’s credentials in the sport of NASCAR are impressive to say the least. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver has 22 wins in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, including five last season. He was a threat to win the 2013 championship until an accident in Fontana earlier this year sidelined the Virginia native for four races. He made his return behind the wheel in the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway - starting the event before being relieved by Brian Vickers mid-race. Hamlin has four top-10 finishes at NASCAR’s Most Competitive track.
“Denny Hamlin is one of the finest drivers in NASCAR, and fans in the Talladega Experience are in for a treat,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “The Experience is available to everyone and puts fans behind the scenes with their favorite drivers leading up to the drop of the green flag – both with the driver appearances in our hospitality village and driver introductions at the start-finish line. This is absolutely an experience you can only get at Talladega.”
The Talladega Experience is just one of the many ticket upgrades available to Talladega Superspeedway ticket holders. The package, which must be accompanied by a Frontstretch Grandstand or Tower ticket, is $145 and can be purchased by calling 877-Go2-DEGA or visiting www.talladegasuperspeedway.com. Other ticket upgrades available include Pre-Race Pit Passes, Fan Suites, the Paddock Club, and the Acceleration Package.
The Camping World RV Sales 500 at Talladega is the sixth race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Series Championship. It has proven to be the Chase “Wildcard” event where fans can expect the unexpected.
The most competitive racing in NASCAR combined with a mix of southern hospitality returns to Talladega Superspeedway October 18-20, 2013 for the Camping World RV Sales 500 Weekend.
