Talladega Superspeedway is excited to announce the initial lineup of weekend concerts and activities for HALLOW-DEGA Presented by Captain Morgan, including infield concerts by Colt Ford on Friday and The Grand Magnolias on Saturday.
Friday, Oct. 29, gets the weekend started with a concert by Colt Ford in the Captain’s Quarters. The Captain’s Quarters are located in the grass area between Eastaboga and Talladega Blvd in the infield
Colt Ford is a walking, talking 300-pound celebration of country music and country living. His songs pay tribute to the people, pastimes and attitudes that define a lifestyle embraced from Texas to Wisconsin, from Florida to Washington State and a lot of places in between. Fans who have race tickets for Saturday or Sunday are welcome to enjoy the one of a kind atmosphere of the Talladega infield and great music.
On Saturday, Oct. 30, race fans will find a costume contest in the Display Area at The Sprint Experience from 2 – 3 pm. SPEED Channel will again host spooky scream contest from 11 – 4 pm with the grand finale occurring live on a special edition of TRACKSIDE Live at 5:30 pm. Vendors throughout the Display Area will also have candy for kids trick-or-treating.
Captain Morgan and the Morganettes will be partying at the Captain’s Quarters stage Saturday night. The festivities get started at 7:00 pm with the Captain Morgan Costume Contest, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd-place prizes for the best costume. The Grand Magnolias, formerly known as Hightide Blues, will take the stage at 8:00 pm with their special blend of “roots rock” with a modern twist. All Sunday ticket holders are invited to experience the infield, concerts and all the fun that makes Talladega “more than a race”.
“We’ve got a great party planned for our final HALLOW-DEGA Presented by Captain Morgan,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “Tickets are still available, so I’d encourage race fans to get them while they are hot!”

Six major NASCAR tracks are within a day’s drive of Tampa. They aren’t exactly local tracks until race speed, good times and fan enthusiasm are measured too. Great destinations justify journeys.
Here the NASCAR venue is considered local if they are within a 10 hour drive from Tampa—Daytona International Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Atlanta Motor Speedway, Darlington Raceway, Talladega Superspeedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.
