Race fans sometimes find themselves in a need of speedy transportation to various locations during a race weekend at Talladega Superspeedway. With that in mind, NASCAR’s Most Competitive track has introduced an all-new TallaTaxi service.
The TallaTaxi golf cart service, from Patron Transportation, will make its Talladega debut during the Alabama 500 and fred’s 250 Powered by Coca-Cola weekend, beginning Tuesday, Oct. 18 and running through Sunday, Oct. 23. For only $5 a seat, TallaTaxi will provide 24-hour transportation to take fans wherever they need to go on speedway property, excluding only the West C campground.
To catch a ride on a TallaTaxi during race weekend, fans can call or text a pick-up request to 205-863-6137, or flag down the unmistakable black and yellow checkered carts while they make their rounds around Talladega’s nearly 3,000 acres.
TallaTaxi offers safe rides to keep guests moving and rested while they enjoy a NASCAR Chase double-elimination weekend for both the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“Creating a one-of-a-kind fan experience has always been an important part of the events at Talladega, and TallaTaxi will provide a premium service to our thousands of fans who normally walk to their desired destinations,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “Bringing the largest and most efficient taxi service to the largest and most competitive track made perfect sense.”
The speedway will continue to provide free tram and ADA shuttle services throughout the weekend as well, at select locations.
