Talladega Superspeedway would be an ideal site to use as a COVID-19 vaccine distribution center.

Racetrack President Brian Crichton said Friday that he’s approached Talladega County emergency management about the possibility and would allow state or regional officials to use the facility off Interstate 20 in Lincoln immediately.
