'Dega designates "Family Friendly" zone

TALLADEGA, Ala. – Talladega Superspeedway announced Tuesday that Gadsden Tower sections Q & R will now become "Family Friendly" with a strict ban on alcohol and smoking in those sections.  

"There has been a growing demand from our fans for alcohol and smoke-free sections," said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch.  "As with most facility improvements we make at Talladega Superspeedway, we have listened to our fans and are moving to accommodate them.  We believe this will be a popular section for families that want a more controlled atmosphere during race weekends.  The rest of our grandstands will continue to allow alcohol and tobacco consumption." 

Ticket prices in the Gadsden and Lincoln Towers have been reduced from $120 to $88 for the Oct. 31 AMP Energy 500, commemorating the NASCAR record-breaking 88 lead changes in the Aaron's 499.  

Race fans that purchase or renew their tickets in these areas will also be entered into a drawing for 88 autographed Dale Earnhardt Jr. hero cards.
