Were you there? We hope so because if you were then you know what a great time was had by everyone at the South Park Campground in Talladega. A Band Called River (ABCR) put on amazing shows and the #79 Victory Weekend Show Car attracted people from all over the site.

Under beautiful Alabama skies over the Talladega Superspeedway, the Victory Weekend crew partnered with ABCR to present two days full of fun, music, and fellowship. We even had Mike Wallace and Steve Johnson hang out with us on stage over the weekend.

On Friday night we entertained a crowd of about 5,000 and honored 95 veterans, active duty personnel, and local first responders. Saturday night saw a little smaller crowd of about 2,500 when we honored 68 more service personnel for their sacrificial service. Earlier that afternoon a cornhole tournament was enjoyed by all the men, women, and young people who participated with the winners receiving the game equipment itself.

Our first Alabama Victory Weekend was a blast and we hope to come back a many more times in the years to come.
