    The project will begin after the Oct. 14 Cup race there. The project is expected to be completed in 2019 in time for the October Cup weekend.

    Among the changes:

    # 44 new enclosed Cup garage stalls

    # Four 25-person suites with views into the Cup garage

    # Existing Cup garage becomes the Xfinity garage

    # Walkway inside the garages allows fans to see the cars being prepared.

    In the fan area:

    # Nearly 35,000-square foot open air club with a bar area, view into the Cup garage and video board on one end.

    # Two new concession stands

    # Two new restrooms

    # First aid facility

    # New Gatorade Victory Lane

    # WiFi coverage throughout the area

    The track also will have a Paddock Club that will have seating for about 600. The track is adding about 300 premium RV Camping sites along the Alabama Gang Superstretch and frontstretch near the start/finish line. Each space will have power and water hookups and be inside a gated community.

    The track will build a new media center. It also will have a new drivers meeting room. There will be a new two-lane oversized vehicle tunnel under Turn 3 that will be large enough for team haulers and RVs.

    I saw the title and feared the worst like "we are reducing the baking/width". Thankfully none of that.

    Still though, no lights? That is personally where I would like to see that 50 million go towards.

    I like it that the tracks like Richmond, ISM, and now Talladega are getting modernized. I think that will lead to a better fan experience, and better areas for the race teams.

    Talladega does not want to add lights because the areas surrounding the track have a high crime rate, especially at night. They don’t want fans to be put in danger or anything like that.

    So if they aren’t going to race at night, just having them to have them in case you can’t finish the last 5 laps or so in the day isn’t really worth it.

    That is a shame due to crime the track won't get lights. They should fix that by spending the 50 million on that first. Do whatever it takes to get us lights :p
