TALLADEGA, Ala. – Officials from Talladega Superspeedway and Ag-Pro Companies, a regional John Deere dealership across seven states, have announced that the newly scheduled NASCAR Xfinity Series race Talladega on Oct. 3 will be known as the Ag-Pro 300 at Talladega.
For the first time in history, the NASCAR Xfinity Series will compete twice in the same season at Talladega. The addition of the Ag-Pro 300 at Talladega comes from a realignment from the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course event, originally set for May 30. The Ag-Pro 300 at Talladega continues the relationship between the 2.66-mile track and Ag-Pro Co., which is also the official tractor dealer of Talladega Superspeedway.
“Ag-Pro is very excited to be the official track partner with the Talladega Superspeedway for the Ag-Pro 300,” said James Groover, CEO of Ag-Pro Companies. “Talladega is a legendary race track that has fans from all over the nation who enjoy some of the world’s most competitive races. Ag-Pro is extremely honored to be the first John Deere dealer in the nation to have a NASCAR race entitlement, and it is at this iconic track!”
“Ag-Pro has been an incredible partner since 2018, serving as our official tractor dealer,” said Talladega Superspeedway President Brian Crichton. “We were excited to learn we would have an Xfinity Series race as part of our NASCAR’s Playoff weekend. To have Ag-Pro, part of the ‘Dega family, be a major part of the historical race means a great deal to our track family and race fans everywhere.”
