Talladega Adding Additional SAFER Barriers

Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch announced today that the Alabama track will install a significant amount of new SAFER barriers, prior to the track’s upcoming Sprint Cup Series weekend.

:Working closely with NASCAR and International Speedway Corporation, Talladega Superspeedway performed an extensive review of its facility and outlined significant safety enhancements that will be in place prior to our NASCAR weekend, Oct. 23-25,” said Lynch.
“Working with Cheaha Construction, we have installed more than 8,000 linear feet of Steel and Foam Energy Reduction (SAFER) Barrier in 2015. We are covering the entire outside and interior retaining walls of the 2.66-mile facility.
“Safety of our competitors and fans is our top priority and we will continue to review the facility and provide updates as circumstances warrant.  We look forward to a tremendous NASCAR weekend featuring the third and final race of the Contender Round in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.”
