Michigan is used to getting snow at this time of year.

But Talladega?

Yep, that’s right, NASCAR’s largest racetrack looks like it’s ready to hold a snowmobile race after getting six inches of the white stuff overnight.

And there may a few more inches still to come, according to area weather reports.

It’s part of a large snowstorm that has blanketed much of the south including Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi.

For comparison sake, here’s what ‘Dega looks like during the best of times:

Snow also fell north of the Mason-Dixon line, where it’s usual around this time of year at Michigan Speedway.

Atlanta Motor Speedway also got into the holiday spirit with its own snow and took advantage of it by having a #FlashbackFriday from back in 1993.

Yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in NASCAR-land.
