We kick-off this spectacular weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway! You be all smiles with a little track time. 7:30am Briefing at the Track. 8:00an - 9:30am is time to do some celebratory laps on the Speedway.
We will take our time and convoy from the Speedway to Alexander City.
Registration Opens at 12:00 Noon. 12:00noon until 7:00pm. This is registration only. The Museum will not be open. Do not bring trailers downtown. Just too many of us and not room for haulers and trailers. Come Register and get your event credentials for the weekend.
We have secured trailer parking off Hwy 280 in Alexander City behind Taco Bell and next to River Bank and Trust. See map below. This is right across from the Winn Dixie we have used in the past but this year there are way too many to be accommodated there. This new location will work well.

Celebrating 50 years of the Aero Warrior Cars and 50 years of the Talladega Super speedway
Sunday revs things up in a big way. Everyone will convoy their cars from Alexander City to Talladega Super Speedway. This year is a special year for the Aero Warriors 5oth Anniversary and the Talladega Super Speedway’s 50th Anniversary! We will not be allowed on the track this year. This year the Speedway is unveiling a brand new 50 million dollar infield and we will be the first to be inside front and center. This will be a great honor for all Aero Warriors.
6:00AM - MEET AT THE ALEXANDER CITY WINN DIXIE PARKING LOT TO LINE-UP FOR THE CONVOY TO TALLADEGA. CONVOY LEAVES AT 6:30AM
We will meet at turn 3 and all enter the Talladega infield all together. This is the “STAGING AREA FOR THE INFIELD” This is where you park trailers and support vehicles, get your armband tickets ready and jump into your Aero cars.
Here is a note from the track.
Be a part of Talladega Superspeedway’s 50th Anniversary October 13! Your historic car will be parked in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series Garage and you can witness the Cup race just inside the track with an up-close look as the cars come out of Turn 4. In addition, you will be able to be a part of debut of the one-of-a-kind Talladega Garage Experience, the center point of the track’s “Transformation” Infield Project that will allow fans to be immersed into the sport of NASCAR and will feature “up-close” access, interactive attractions and enhanced amenities for fans. The TGE will feature an open-air club with garage viewing of the teams prepping the race cars, new Gatorade Victory Lane, Wi-Fi, social areas, etc. Your cars will be able to be viewed by fans from not only the stands, but also from those who have TGE passes. This garage is the original garage from which the aero cars made their debut. Indeed a special day awaits the Aero warriors.
