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.

Ergo:

It could be one of the first times that Talladega just beat MIS for bragging rights over which track has more snow.

Martinsville Speedway also got some of the white stuff:

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.
