authentic NASCAR merchandise and host exclusive fan events starting Oct. 4.

"We are particularly appreciative to and grateful for the commitment that
Walmart and NASCAR have made to our area for the races held in Talladega,"

event, but they are afforded more disposable income to make an economic impact
