Porsche Parade Day 6 – Talladega Superspeedway

Pictures from Day 6 of the Porsche Parade on Friday June 14th in Birmingham, AL. Today we drove to Talladega Superspeedway for some laps around the track. This has to be one of the most exciting things I have ever done! The track has 33 degree banking in its turns and 16.5 degree banking in the trioval section. The track is 2.66 miles around with a 4300 foot front stretch and a 4000 foot backstretch. The track is 48 feet wide with four lanes plus a 12 foot apron. The corners are nearly three stories tall. You could fit all 16 SEC football stadiums inside it. Its just insanity!

Finally, we made it inside the track. What a place!

They lined us up with about 10 cars at a time. Red Pace trucks in front and at the back. Wow!

We all headed back, but Marie and Bob veered off to go to Liberty Park and the Statue of Liberty replica.

Back at the hotel, we gathered up to go to dinner.

Most of the group had a nice dinner at Dillard’s Chophouse in the Westin Hotel. What a great day!
