As a special incentive, the track is offering people age 16 and older with a valid driver's license who choose to be tested and/or vaccinated the thrill of driving their car or truck on the 2.66-mile track. Drivers and their riders will take two laps behind a pace car at highway speed, including the 33-degree-high banks.

Drivers and passengers taking the laps around the track are required to complete a consent waiver (see links below). Drivers 19 and older must have a valid driver's license, car registration in their name and vehicle insurance. Sixteen to eighteen year olds with a valid driver’s license MUST have his or her legal guardian sign the minor consent form and be in the vehicle with the driver during the laps. Passengers under the age of 19 will need a parent to sign the minor consent form.


Vaccination Details

No registration will be needed for vaccination. At the drive-through event, all participants will be asked to review educational material about COVID-19 vaccine and sign a consent form (links above). Free COVID-19 vaccination is provided by the Alabama National Guard in partnership with the Alabama Department of Public Health. Vaccine will be administered by members of the Alabama National Guard, with a public health nurse present. After receiving the vaccine, people will wait 15-minutes to be observed for any rare allergic reactions. Those vaccinated will return to receive their second dose at the speedway.

Free COVID-19 testing is provided by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Increasing Community Access to Testing (ICATT) program contractor eTrueNorth. Registration for testing is encouraged but not required. You can register at doineedacovid19test.com.
