VALDOSTA, Ga. – Two NASCAR legends will make special appearances during Coca-Cola Racing Weekend, August 25 and 26 at Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga.


“Coca-Cola Racing Weekend is a new event to Wild Adventures, and we are thrilled to kick it off this year with two of NASCAR’s most well-known and accomplished drivers,” said Patrick Pearson, marketing director.


Bobby Allison, member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, 1983 NASCAR Cup Series Champion and three-time Daytona 500 winner, will appear at the park’s Lonestar Stage from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, August 25 to sign autographs and take photos with fans.
