talladega_superspeed_c_thumbAll four of the auto racing events CV Products is scheduled to attend this weekend take place in the great state of Alabama, and three of those will be staged at the historic tri-oval known as Talladega Superspeedway. Of course we’ll have trailers in the pits at all four events for teams last-minute must-have gear, as well as spur-of-the-moment impulse buys.

If Alabama is where you’re headed this weekend, be sure to look us up:

International Motorsports Hall of Fame 250

Int_MS_HOF_250You talk about tight turnarounds — after competing in the 93rd ARCA race at Salem on Sunday, the series immediately steers for Talladega where the 51st annual Int’l Motorsports Hall of Fame 250 is set for this Friday afternoon, May 3. That’s 94 laps around the Talladega tri-oval for the likes of Frank Kimmel, the only former ARCA series champ entered in Friday’s race. He’ll be making his 20th start at Talladega since 1992. The only other Talladega champion entered Friday is Bobby Gerhart, an eight-time winner at Daytona, who had a 2001 win at Talladega.

Aaron’s 312

aarons312_thumbThe Aaron’s 312 is a NASCAR Nationwide Series race that’s been held at Talladega Superspeedway since 2001. So why 312 miles? The race’s sponsor is a lease-to-own retailer, and the dozen extra miles are tacked on to reflect Aaron’s slogan: “3 ways to buy, 12 reasons to shop at Aaron’s.” Now there’s a little trivia for the guy sitting next to you at Talladega this Friday.

Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco 125

Nearly 30 cars are expected to compete in Saturday’s Southern Super Series 125-lap event for Super Late Models. Bubba Pollard, Stephen Nasse, Mike Garvey, DJ VanderLey, Donnie Wilson, Daniel Hemric, Augie Grill, Jeff Choquette, TJ Reaid, will be on hand. Also, debuting at this event will be the new Open Sportsman division, with a simple rule package allowing nearly any car to be eligible. Street Stock and Buzz divisions will be in action as well.

Aaron’s 499

It was the first race at Talladega run without a caution flag. And while the race runs slightly more than 500 miles in length, it’s called Aaron’s 499 to tout the sponsor’s offer of rentals for “$99 per month.” Ergo, the 499. More fun facts for race fans!
