TALLADEGA, Ala. (TENNESSEE VALLEY LIVING) - Another weekend of racing is kicking off and the Tennessee Valley Living crew hit the track in Talladega to see what it’s all about.

The NASCAR playoffs are back with the YellaWood 500 happening at Talladega Superspeedway on October 2. The race brings in some of NASCAR’s biggest stars as they continue their quest for the Bill France Cup!

Payton Walker talks with drivers, has some fun with fans and much, much more.

First up is an interview with a man who grew up on the track and is keeping the family name alive, NASCAR driver, Jeffrey Earnhardt.
