Talladega Superspeedway announced a “Rally With Your Team” ticket sales contest for the Sylacauga (AL) Cal Ripken Baseball League during Opening Day ceremonies Saturday. The team that sells the most tickets to the Aaron’s Dream Weekend (May 2-4) will be recognized in uniform on the Pre-Race stage prior to the Aaron’s 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series race on Saturday, May 3. Located on the start-finish line, the Pre-Race stage is where the starting field for the Aaron’s 312 will be introduced to the fans just minutes before the green flag falls. While the winning team will have the opportunity to walk across the stage, every kid participating in the contest was given a free ticket voucher for the Aaron’s 312 along with a special discounted ticket offer for their parents. “This is Talladega’s first time partnering with a local youth sporting league, and we hope that it will be a successful program that we can continue to build on in years to come,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “Our staff values the opportunity to go out into the community and interact with our future leaders and fans. We look forward to seeing the kids at the Aaron’s 312, and can’t wait to have the winning team that sells the most tickets on stage.” The track has also planned a post-season party at the 2.66-mile venue for all teams that are able to sell 30 tickets or more. The day will include pace car rides, Victory Lane photo opportunities, and admission into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum for the kids at no cost to the teams. Talladega Superspeedway has introduced multiple youth initiatives for Aaron’s Dream Weekend that include $50 off all tickets for kids aged 12 and under, a partnership with Junior Achievement of Greater Birmingham and an exclusive Boy Scouts ticket offer that gives the scouts a special campground all to themselves. Talladega Superspeedway prides itself on being a family-friendly destination, with fun to be had for fans of all ages. TSS PR
