Big, fast and - sometimes - mean.
Get ready race fans.
It is Talladega time.
Talladega is NASCAR’s biggest and fastest track. It’s known for three-and-four-wide racing on the high-banked 2.66-mile tri-oval facility.
While Talladega is known for its speed, it is also famous for its camping.
Being located in the hills of northern Alabama, camping is the main form of accommodations for the 143,000 spectators that will attend the race.
Sprinkled around the speedway are 23 campgrounds that offer plenty of options for the RV
camping race fan.
I have taken a look at three such RV parks along with the camping options inside the 212-acre infield.
So, enjoy the four-wide racing and the inevitable ‘Big One.’DOVE RIDGE CAMPGROUND
