Talladega Superspeedway and the International Motorsports Hall of Fame are hosting the inaugural Spring Classic Car Show in the Cup series garage at the 2.66-mile speedway on Saturday.
In addition to seeing a variety of classic cars, attendees will also be able to meet Miss Motorsports Lee Anne Fuller as well as 15-year-old racer Jade Dalton, according to Amanda Thomas with the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.
Dalton, a Talladega native, started racing junior dragsters when she was 9 years old. She now races Outlaw 330 in the Southeast Junior Racing Association. The young driver will be on hand to answer questions all day. One of her cars will shown at the car show while another will be displayed at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum.
The first 500 participants to register their cars in the show will have the opportunity to drive their vehicle around Talladega Superspeedway. Registration for the show is $50 and includes two admissions to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. Registration is $30 for those who do not wish to drive their car around the track.

Thomas said attendees would be allowed to bring coolers into the event. Part of the proceeds from the event will be donated to a local charity, according to a news release from the speedway.
All participants will receive commemorative dash plaques and will be entered to win door prizes including tickets to the AMP Energy 500.
