Known as NASCAR’s Most Competitive track, Talladega Superspeedway is bringing back a different style of competition – U.S. Navy SEAL style – with the HESCO BONEFROG on Saturday, March 24, 2018.
The HESCO BONEFROG, an Obstacle Course Race (OCR) owned and operated by U.S. Navy SEALs, returns to NASCAR’s biggest and baddest track for the second consecutive year. A truly unique experience, BONEFROG was created by Navy SEALs to challenge, build and inspire participants to become better athletes and recognize that they can do anything they set their minds to, while enjoying the camaraderie and teamwork usually reserved for active duty Navy SEALs.
The HESCO BONEFROG is sure to bring one of the best OCRs ever and enthusiasts will not want to miss this one-of-a-kind experience held in Talladega’s iconic infield as well as around the outside property of the mammoth venue. Last year nearly 600 people participated in the event, testing their mental and physical endurance while tackling the difficult course.
The event will boast three race distances that include: 3+ miles Sprint / 20+ obstacles; 6+ miles Challenge / 30+ obstacles; 9+ miles TIER-1 / 50+ obstacles. There is also an Endurance race which includes 6+ miles Challenge / 30+ obstacles plus as many sprint laps as possible by the time cut off. Youngsters can join in on the fun with a kid’s race featuring 1/4 or 1/2 miles of 8+ Navy SEAL-style obstacles.

Both options can be reserved by calling 855-518-RACE (7223) or logging on to www.talladegasuperspeedway.com. These campsites will also be available for purchase upon arrival.

Spectators are welcome, and admission is FREE. Sports vendors, music, beer, food and refreshments will be available throughout the day’s event. Navy SEALs, along with other Special Operations soldiers, will be part of the event staff and motivating racers. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the Navy SEAL Foundation providing immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the NAVAL Special Warfare community and their families.
