Facility Rules: Entry Guide

Enhanced NASCAR 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) 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. 

The information below is subject to change.

Entrance Tips

If you are securing your ticket/admission within a protective holder on a lanyard, please ensure the barcode is completely visible in a clear area.

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, unless instructed to do so. If carrying coins, please remove them prior to entry to avoid detection of these items. Weapons of any kind (including pocket knives) are strictly prohibited in grandstand/tower seating as well as the Talladega Garage Experience.

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.

All seating areas at Talladega Superspeedway are SMOKE FREE. This includes cigarettes, pipes, cigars, electronic cigarettes and vapes (with or without nicotine). Designated smoking sections are located throughout the concourses. See below for locations.
