With Joey Lagano capturing the checkered flag to win the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, it’s time to take a look at the real heroes of ‘Dega – the fans. Race weekend in Talladega is notorious for its craziness and abundance of bad life decisions and all I have to say is thank the heavens above for social media.

Seriously, a weekend at the world’s fastest racetrack isn’t as debauched as the legend of the good ol’ days might suggest, but, no doubt about it, the fans know how to have a good time at Talladega. Check out these crazy Tweets and Instagram posts from NASCAR’s wildest weekend.

Soaking it all in here at dega☀️ – My first time at @talladegasupers was one for the books! Amazing time with good friends, and I can’t wait to come back! If you haven’t been I 10/10 recommend you going! Thanks @nascar for a great day! #NASCAR #GEICO500 #ad – #birminghamblogger #instagrambham #alabama #talladega #fashionblogger
