In addition to the special Q&A session for only guests who purchase the Jimmie Johnson Sunday Experience Package, also included will be a Talladega Garage Experience admission that offers FREE Wi-Fi, incredible $4 or less value-priced concessions, Kids Zone, Game Zone, entertainment stage featuring Driver Q&As and other interviews in Fr8Auctions Celebration Plaza, social areas such as Clyde May’s Courtyard and Tito’s Lemonade Lounge, Gatorade Victory Lane celebrations after Sunday’s race, Sunday pre-race ceremonies and Driver Introductions at the start-finish line, and much more!

Johnson, who is in his 20th year competing in the NASCAR Cup Series, will have a shot for his third TSS victory when he rolls into NASCAR’s biggest track in April. Of his two victories at ’Dega, both came in the track’s spring events. His jaw-dropping 2011 GEICO 500 finish is the closest in NASCAR Cup Series history when he came from fifth position to first after exiting Turn 4 to beat Clint Bowyer at the line by .002 second. Additionally, Johnson has accumulated seven top-five results and 13 finishes in the top 10 at TSS. His second career pole came at Talladega in April of 2002, his rookie season.
