Talladega Superspeedway fan Tony of Dawsonville, Georgia who arrived at the North campground earlier today says he like to get set up and stay in one place until Sunday. Tony says it is a great place to come. Calhoun County greatly benefits from all of the race weekend traffic. And, according to Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Matthew Wade, the goal is to make sure everybody enjoys themselves but also stays safe. So, he says they will have officers on duty.
