BIRMINGHAM, AL – The new Talladega Grille, themed after NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track – Talladega Superspeedway – will be unveiled Thursday at 3:30 p.m. as part of a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly renovated wing at the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport.
Much like the fans’ anticipation of seeing 3500-pound stock cars on the high banks of Talladega Superspeedway battling three- and four-wide at 200 mph, so, too, will be the travelers’ eagerness to taste the delicacies of the Talladega Grille, which officially opens August 14.
“We are thrilled about the opening of the Talladega Grille at the newly renovated wing of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth Airport,” said Grant Lynch, Chairman of Talladega Superspeedway. “Many of our race fans fly into Birmingham before they make the short trip to NASCAR’s Most Competitive Track, and we are excited about having our brand greet them upon their arrival.
“The city of Birmingham has always been one of our greatest partners and it will be a pleasure serving the masses who utilize the airport. While fans are here at Talladega Superspeedway during race weekend, we always remind them of the many things to do and places to see while in Birmingham. With the new Talladega Grille, we are glad to join other businesses as a part of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth Airport.”
The new wing of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth Airport is part of the Terminal Modernization Project and will feature other retail outlets.
