TALLADEGA SUPERSPEEDWAY -- Maurice Tuck and Boyd McGehee pull the basket out of the boiler Saturday during the seventh annual low country shrimp boil and drawdown at the Monster Energy Garages at Talladega Superspeedway.

The event serves as a fundraiser for Talladega’s Historic Ritz Theatre, and Ritz Executive Director George Culver said the proceeds would go toward underwriting “all the school performances" at the theatre during the 2018-19 academic year.

The event is sometimes billed as “the biggest end of summer party in east Alabama.” Look for coverage of the fundraiser, including more photos, in Wednesday’s Daily Home.
