Enhanced ISC security measures may lead to increased entry times. In an effort to ensure the safety of all guests entering Talladega Superspeedway, every patron will enter through one of five Entry Plazas (1,2,3,4,7) or vehicle gates (V20/V33) for customers with Reserved Parking, and be security wand scanned (body scanned) and all carry-in items will be searched. To allow for these security measures, guests are encouraged to enter the grandstand/facility early.
Gates open at 9:00 AM Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for the Spring 2018 NASCAR weekend. See entry gate map. Here are the gates open each day:
One soft-sided bag or cooler:
One lightweight backpack or cinch bag:
Other items that will be allowed include:
There are no provisions for checking and holding items deemed restricted. Restricted items may not be left at or around the gates. Items left unattended will be removed and discarded.
Any other items deemed inappropriate or unsafe may be refused at the discretion of security and management. These items are subject to change without notice.
When approaching the metal detectors, please remove any large metal objects (cell phones, keys, cameras, etc.) . You do not need to remove your hat, jacket, belt, wallet, watch, or other objects of similar size. If carrying coins, please remove them prior to entry to avoid detection of these items.
Wait for Gate Staff to instruct you to walk to the body screener, one person at a time. If the device detects something, you may be asked to re-check your pockets and will be scanned again. Once you are screened, please proceed to the bag check station and again to the gate for your ticket to be scanned.
You and your belongings will be searched upon entry into Talladega Superspeedway. We suggest you review our Allowed/Prohibited Items list before arriving on property, and approaching the gates. By tendering your ticket and entering the grandstand/facility, you consent to such searches and waive any related claims that you might have against Talladega Superspeedway, its members and/or subsidiaries, officers, employees, agents, sponsors, trustees, receivers, successors and assigns, parent companies, related or affiliated companies and all of their shareholders and directors, and sanctioning bodies. If you elect to not consent to the searches, you will be denied entry to the grandstand/facility. Every guest must pass through a security checkpoint. Re-entries are permitted with valid ticket, but all guests will be re-screened. All gates at Talladega Superspeedway are ADA accessible.
