TALLADEGA, Ala. — Officials from Talladega Superspeedway and Chevrolet announced that the American automobile manufacturer will again be the entitlement sponsor of the Oct. 2 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs race at the 2.66-mile track.
As it was known last year, the Chevy Silverado 250 at Talladega will again serve as a vital race in the Camping World Truck Series Playoffs.
The official NASCAR Chevy Silverado pace truck will lead the field to green at Noon CDT in the 16th Chevy Silverado 250 at Talladega.
The race will be a part of a Saturday doubleheader which will see the Sparks 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs event later in the day at 3 p.m. CT. The weekend culminates with the Sunday, Oct. 3 NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs race – the YellaWood 500.
“Chevy is excited to bring the Chevrolet Silverado 250 to the Talladega Superspeedway on the heels of introducing major enhancements to the redesigned 2022 Silverado, including the first-ever Silverado ZR2,and an impressive 13.4-inch-diagonal color touchscreen that is standard equipment on the majority of the Silverado lineup,” said Mark Sobczynski, Chevrolet Silverado Marketing Manager. “The strength of the Silverado will be on display as the truck paces the race and competes at NASCAR’s biggest track, while we will also host some of Silverado’s biggest fans and Chevy Truck Legends to an exclusive presentation of the Silverado ZR2.”
“We are thrilled that the Chevy Silverado 250 will be making its return to Talladega Superspeedway,” said track President Brian Crichton. “Just like Talladega Superspeedway, NASCAR’s biggest and most competitive venue, Chevrolet and its Silverado Trucks are tough and bold. The Silverado has been a mainstay in our sport for many years, and we are happy to welcome back our friends from Chevrolet. It’s going to be one heck of a race like it always is here at Talladega.”
