It’s a celebration at Talladega Superspeedway as track officials today announced that Fr8Auctions (Freight Auctions) has joined the track family once again and will serve as the sponsor of the new Fr8Auctions Celebration Plaza that will be located in the one-of-a-kind Talladega Garage Experience, set to debut this October.
Fans with a Talladega Garage Experience admission can enjoy a host of activities all weekend long in Fr8Auctions Celebration Plaza during the NASCAR Playoffs doubleheader (Oct. 11-13), featuring the 1000Bulbs.com 500 and the Sugarlands Shine 250.
Fr8Auctions Celebration Plaza will house the new, modern ‘old-school’ style winner’s circle where fans will have the chance to be a part of the victor’s celebration after each race from a reserved area at Gatorade Victory Lane. They will also be treated to many Fan Question/Answer sessions with NASCAR drivers and other personalities, as well as local entertainment that will be happening throughout race weekend on the Fr8Auctions Celebration Plaza stage (adjacent from Gatorade Victory Lane).
Fr8Auctions, which served as an official sponsor for qualifying and an entitlement sponsor in 2018 at the 2.66-mile track, is an integrity-based auction that brings together a combination of the best buyers in the Southeast along with the highest quality merchandise. The Atlanta, GA-based business partners with freight lines, distribution companies, and consumer product-based businesses in order to sell their excess, discontinued or damaged inventory. Today, Fr8Auctions is the "go-to" business solution for companies across America that need to refuel their supply chain and distribution capabilities.
"We’re thrilled to partner with Talladega Superspeedway and be a part of the new infield renovation initiative," said Marcus Barela, owner of Fr8Auctions. "Although we are an Atlanta-based company, we’ve always considered Talladega our home track with the best fans in racing!"
In addition to all things offered in Fr8Auctions Celebration Plaza, the Talladega Garage Experience provides fans exclusive access inside all of the Monster Energy Cup garages via an "up-close" fan viewing walkway where they will be just feet away from where the drivers and teams prepare the cars during race weekend. Guests with a Garage Experience pass will also receive FREE Wi-Fi, have access to social and engagement areas, a Kids Zone, Watch Zone, the Clyde May’s Courtyard, incredible $4 or less Value-Priced Concessions, Sunday pre-race ceremonies, Driver Introductions at the Start-Finish line and much more!
The Sugarlands Shine 250 for the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series will kick off the action-packed weekend on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 12:30 p.m. CDT. The weekend’s anchor event, the 1000Bulbs.com 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, is scheduled for a 1 p.m. CDT start on Sunday, Oct. 13. Both will serve as key playoff events in each series.
