Ever wonder what it’s like to race around Talladega Superspeedway’s 2.66-mile tri-oval track at more than 100 miles an hour?

As part of a media event Wednesday morning, track officials offered rides in the official pace car for Sunday’s GEICO 500. With NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Chase Briscoe at the wheel, each participant took two laps around the track at speeds reaching 155 miles an hour.
