So much to be thankful for

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

This time of year usually means two things - an end to the NASCAR season and a time to give thanks...

And here at Atlanta Motor Speedway, we have a lot to be thankful for. During the past year, many of you have made coming to various events at AMS, big and small, part of your schedules. We thank each and everyone of you for making Atlanta Motor Speedway part of your lives this year!

This year, we've been blessed with a pair of NASCAR race weekends - and there was no shortage of exciting racing. Between Kyle Busch winning the Camping World Truck Series race and brother Kurt winning the Kobalt Tools 500 the next day - and doing his backwards victory lap - we got our first NASCAR weekend off to a start.

Then, during the summer, Thursday Thunder Legends racing on Thursday nights and Friday Night Drags took to the track, and neither disappointed. One of the highlights for our Web Staff was getting to see so many of you during that time and match names and faces.

It's also during this time when we launched our Facebook and Twitter pages. We've enjoyed getting to know many of you through these places and look forward to more of the same in 2010! 

And then, on Labor Day weekend, night racing came to Atlanta! Needless to say, it was a rousing success thanks to many of you fans! From night racing under the lights, the racing on Labor Day weekend and the Pre-Race Concert Presented by the Georgia Lottery - the entire weekend was a great success! We've received tremendous feedback from many of you on what you liked and disliked from the race weekend, and we thank all of you for that! It will help us make next year's race weekends even better!

Yes, we have been blessed greatly in 2009 and have so much to be thankful for. Hopefully, we'll see many of you next year in 2010 as we seek to make it the best year of racing at Atlanta Motor Speedway!

And remember, the best way to stay plugged in is to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

Happy Thanksgiving!
