Any brethren considering making a trip to this contest?

$50,000 in prize money. Contest at the famed Talladega Superspeedway! 2 tickets to Sunday's Amp Energy 500 included in the package.

Looks like a good one!

I was toying with the idea Rob, then I came to my senses! Oinktoberfest nearly killed me doing it by myself. Not so sure I'd survive Taladega. But to live and die in Dixie is something I'd like to put off for a few years, at least the dieing part........... I hope!

QueTPies will not be able to make the trip. Just a little too far and the wife can't get off work. Oh ya, and I have no money either.

According to the website, money has to be in by next week, October 9th. I probabably won't be able to do it without help.

We decided to go back to the Best of the Best in Douglas instead. We really like that comp.

I've already emailed some questions and wanted to post the answers I got just in case someone else was wondering the same thing:

- Community water is available, just not sure where it's going to be (we'll be taking water totes and a two wheeler to haul 'em)
- You're gonna need a pass to get your vehicle/cooking rigs in either Thursday or Friday and these will be mailed out.
- We get to stay in our spots thru Sunday. (we're planning on sneaking out around 1A Monday morning so we don't have to fight traffic)
- Not sure about ice and prices yet but it's Talladega....I'm sure someone will be selling it.


Anybody got anything else to add?

Showers???

I go to the race there and as far as I know the only showers are in the family campground which I doubt you'll have access to. The altenative is out on Speedway Blvd there is pay showerhouses about a mile and half from the track which you can drive to on Friday (go early in the morning 5:00 or before, there crowded any other time) Saturday you might be able to go but plan on taking a while. Wish I was going:frown:

We talked to Betty and she said that Ronnie said that there is showers just outside turn 1 and in the infield. We just don't have one in our location.

I'll be there Saturday morning as a judge or table captain. Looks like 104 teams are in; from an email I received today...
DEGAQUE Talladega is getting closer. Just want to "touch base with you" and let you know that the packets will be mailed early next week. We are waiting for NASCAR to send us the parking passes and credentials that you will need to get into the judging area.

There are 2 attachments to this E Mail - there is a map of our location and NASCAR rules. Please read carefully and I suggest you print them off (map & rules) and bring with you so you will have a reference to use.

We have 104 teams and some of the best cook teams on the BBQ circuit today. We have great Reps, which always makes a contest go smoothly.

PLEASE PUT YOUR DEGAQUE PACKETS WITH YOUR CREDENTIALS AND PARKING PASSES IN A PLACE THAT YOU KNOW YOU WILL BE TAKING TO THE CONTEST.
IF YOU LEAVE THEM AT HOME, WE WON'T BE ABLE TO FURNISH DUPLICATE PASSES, BECAUSE WE WON'T HAVE ANY. THIS IS STRICTLY FURNISHED BY NASCAR AND THE TALLADEGA RACE TRACK.
