"Talladega Nights" will be shown in the infield at Talladega on race weekend

Posted: Updated:

The biggest infield party in NASCAR just got a little extra "Shake…and Bake".  The hit movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, will be shown in the infield of Talladega Superspeedway on Saturday, October 6th.  The movie will follow the Florida Georgia Line concert, and is just one of the many added attractions at this year's Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 Weekend.
The movie was filmed on location at Talladega Superspeedway in 2005 and stars Will Ferrell and John C. Riley.  This hilarious film based on the racing career of fictional racecar driver Ricky Bobby features cameos from many NASCAR personalities and drivers.
"Talldega Nights is one of our favorite movies and it'll be a blast playing it in the infield for all our fans," said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch.  "It adds even more entertainment to a weekend that's going to be filled with big fun and non-stop racing action."
Fans must have a ticket for the Sunday race or a infield admission to get into the Saturday night movie and the concert.  The Sprint Vision screen showing the film will be located near the intersection of Talladega and Eastaboga Boulevards in the infield.  The concert begins at 7:30, and the movie will begin showing immediately following the concert.
The most competitive racing in NASCAR combined with a mix of southern hospitality returns to Talladega Superspeedway October 5-7, 2012 for the Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500 Weekend.  For tickets and information visit www.talladegasuperspeedway.com or call 1-877-Go2-DEGA.
