YellaWood 500 Part of NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs; Braves Eyeing MLB Postseason
TALLADEGA, Ala. – Talladega Superspeedway is teaming up with the National League East-leading Atlanta Braves to offer a special package that includes a ticket to the Talladega Superspeedway YellaWood 500 on Sunday, Oct. 3, PLUS a ticket to a Braves game down the stretch in 2021!
The incredible value package is just $69 and includes the following:
- A Reserved Seat in the Lincoln Grandstand near Turn 4 for the YellaWood 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR’s Most Competitive venue, during the Round of 12 of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs
- A Home Run Porch ticket (beyond outfield between left and right center) for a Braves matchup between September 10 and October 2 at the Braves’ Major League Baseball facility – Truist Park – in Atlanta, GA.
The package announcement coincided with Tuesday’s “Chase Elliott Night” during the Braves’ home game against the Washington Nationals. Elliott, a longtime Braves fan who has a special place in his heart for Talladega Superspeedway, is from nearby Dawsonville, GA (just 2 ½ hours away from Talladega, AL). The reigning NASCAR Cup Series Champion and three-time Most Popular Driver was victorious at the 2.66-mile Talladega Superspeedway in spring of 2019 during the GEICO 500. He is one of the 16 drivers who are the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, and currently sits 10th.
