Talladega Superspeedway Ensures Compliance Through IMAGE Partnership


Talladega, Ala. (November 13, 2014) — Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR’s biggest, fastest and most competitive track, became the state’s latest employer to partner with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) this week as part of a nationwide program designed to strengthen hiring practices and combat the unlawful employment of unauthorized workers.

The 2.66-mile, 33 degree banked speedway became an ICE Mutual Agreement between Government and Employers (IMAGE) partner during a ceremony at the track. IMAGE is a voluntary program that allows private industry to partner with ICE to reduce unauthorized employment and the use of fraudulent identity documents.

“We are happy to work with our local officials to ensure compliance and have a secure and stable workforce,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “We are extremely proud to be a part of the program.”

"I'm pleased to welcome Talladega Superspeedway as an IMAGE partner," said Raymond R. Parmer Jr., special agent in charge of HSI New Orleans. "When employers make a proactive commitment to hire and maintain a lawful workforce, it's good for their business, their customers and the community as a whole."

Parmer oversees a five-state area of operations to include Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.

As a member of the IMAGE program, Talladega Superspeedway will receive specialized training for completion of the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9, E-Verify, fraudulent identification document recognition and it will have direct access to an HSI special agent with expertise in worksite enforcement for matters concerning employment authorization and compliance.

Talladega Superspeedway hosts two of NASCAR’s major weekends annually. The 2015 slate is set for May 1-3 with the Talladega 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup (NSCS) race and the Winn-Dixie 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series event. The fall tradition of the GEICO 500 NSCS race, the sixth race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, and the fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR Camping World Truck Series classic, is set for Oct.  23-25.
