Race fans headed to Talladega Superspeedway this week may need to leave their lighters at home.
Talladega Superspeedway issued a burn ban for the race week that ends on October 24th. That comes on top of bans from Governor Robert Bentley and the State Forestry Commission.
The ban includes campfires, pit fires, bonfires, and the use of fireworks on Talladega grounds.
Grant Lynch is the chairman of Talladega Superspeedway. He says this isn’t the first time weather conditions have made for a change in plans.
