Mark Thompson on Talladega Superspeedway:
“Talladega is my most favorite track in all of NASCAR. It’s convenient to my home which is in Cartersville, GA and it’s only about 75 miles from my home. As a pilot, I can fly over there quite quickly and easily. I like the track, it’s just an enjoyable place to drive. I’ve driven about 20 to 30 races at Talladega over my career in the ARCA and Xfinity Series and I’m looking forward to getting in the 15 cup car this weekend”.
