- Clear plastic bags are allowed into the grandstands provided they fit the required size requirement:
18"X18"X4" or smaller. ONLY ONE CLEAR PLASTIC BAG ALLOWED IN CLEAR PLASTIC BAGS

- Food & Beverages ARE allowed
- Items such as binoculars, radio scanners, cameras and seat cushions are still allowed in the grandstands. Talladega Superspeedway asks that fans utilize neck straps and belt clips to bring those items through the gates.
- All items brought through the gate areas are subject to inspection
- The track is not responsible for any items left at the gates

yea my cooler didnt pass inspection back in the fall at one entrance so i went on down to another one where it did pass....better bring can sasporillas....stuff as many in your pockets as you can cause that sun drains you and i guarantee you will drink them all

have done bristol summer races last 3 years and will do this year also. did the march races also this year. hs buddy of mine lives in johnson city, tn, has season tickets, and has got me hooked. like being able to take beer and food into race. also like checking out the babes, especially at the summer race. only complaint is that 8 out of every 10 people seem to smoke and all seems to blow in my face. nutin that beer cannot cure, however.

Free tickets are the best tickets.

Bristol and Atlanta will let you take a 16' cooler in the race
you can get a case in one of those bad boys

You can pick up as many coolers as you want about 10 minutes after the race starts
I lost my bad boy cooler with all my stickers on it 3 or so years ago when they changed the policy

don't know about hotlanta, but have to hoof it at bristol even riding bus (old yellow blue bird) to within 500-yds of track. problem is beer in cooler is heavy and there is a 30-deg grade that must be negotiated. must grab 2x granny gear with my rebocks and trade off cooler half way up to make it all the way up hill. bud darn, that beer at top sure tastes good.

After several failed attempts at creating some device to carry the cooler like a backpack and all the scanners and whatnot we bought a little all-terrain trailer and pull that. Got it for like 15 bucks at one of those deals where a company shows up in an abandoned big box store and they unload a couple of trailers and sell just about anything you could ever imagine. We have a bike chain on it and chain it to the fence,(the outside fence a 'Dega or they will cut it off and take it). Bristol is like Dad's trip to school, up hill both ways.

The backpacks that were designed so that kids couldn't hide anything in them without it being seen are now being used to carry BEER!!!
