As Talladega prepares for the upcoming Good Sam Roadside Assistance 500, select Walmart stores will offer authentic NASCAR merchandise and host exclusive fan events starting Oct. 4. Customers are invited to attend these special events and enjoy special appearances by Greg Biffle, Clint Bowyer and Bobby Labonte, along with show car and simulator displays– perfect to safely get behind the wheel and feel the power of NASCAR – on Oct. 4-6 from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., varying by location.

"We are particularly appreciative to and grateful for the commitment that Walmart and NASCAR have made to our area for the races held in Talladega," said Mack Ferguson, executive director of the Greater Talladega Area Chamber of Commerce. "Not only can many fans participate in a more cost-friendly event, but they are afforded more disposable income to make an economic impact on the businesses surrounding the area."

Race Time at Walmart
In addition to the fan events happening in Walmart parking lots, area Walmart stores will feature savings on all the food and snacks you need to enjoy the race, plus authentic NASCAR merchandise such as T-shirts and racing flags, with an even bigger selection of exclusive products available at Walmart.com/NASCAR.
