TALLADEGA, October 20, 2010: Talladega Superspeedway is excited to announce the initial lineup of weekend concerts and activities for HALLOW-DEGA Presented by Captain Morgan, including infield concerts by Colt Ford on Friday and The Grand Magnolias on Saturday.

Friday, Oct. 29, gets the weekend started with a concert by Colt Ford in the Captain’s Quarters. The Captain’s Quarters are located in the grass area between Eastaboga and Talladega Blvd in the infield

Colt Ford is a walking, talking 300-pound celebration of country music and country living. His songs pay tribute to the people, pastimes and attitudes that define a lifestyle embraced from Texas to Wisconsin, from Florida to Washington State and a lot of places in between. Fans who have race tickets for Saturday or Sunday are welcome to enjoy the one of a kind atmosphere of the Talladega infield and great music.

On Saturday, Oct. 30, race fans will find a costume contest in the Display Area at The Sprint Experience from 2 – 3 pm. SPEED Channel will again host spooky scream contest from 11 – 4 pm with the grand finale occurring live on a special edition of TRACKSIDE Live at 5:30 pm. Vendors throughout the Display Area will also have candy for kids trick-or-treating.

Captain Morgan and the Morganettes will be partying at the Captain’s Quarters stage Saturday night. The festivities get started at 7:00 pm with the Captain Morgan Costume Contest, including 1st, 2nd and 3rd-place prizes for the best costume. The Grand Magnolias, formerly known as Hightide Blues, will take the stage at 8:00 pm with their special blend of “roots rock” with a modern twist. All Sunday ticket holders are invited to experience the infield, concerts and all the fun that makes Talladega “more than a race”.

“We’ve got a great party planned for our final HALLOW-DEGA Presented by Captain Morgan,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “Tickets are still available, so I’d encourage race fans to get them while they are hot!”
