Spring Has Sprung...And So Has The Excitement!

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

You can tell by the warmer temperatures and pollen that spring is here, bringing anticipation of excitement with it...

While the yellow pollen may not be a welcome sight, one thing that is welcome is that it means we're getting closer and closer to lots of excitement during the coming months at Atlanta Motor Speedway!

Sure it's around five months away, but we're building toward the Labor Day weekend night race! We're making preparations on many fronts, even though it's only April, to give our fans a fantastic and first-class experience when they arrive here in September to see racing under the lights on one of racing's most exciting tracks! 

But before September gets here, there will still be plenty of racing going on with our summer racing series! Friday Night Drags, heads-up drag racing on pit road, starts April 30 and the first points night is June 4. We've got an exciting schedule planned - including some new Show-N-Shine classes! Spectator entry for Friday Night Drags is just $7.

Competitors pay $20 to drag race or enter the Show-N-Shine, or a combo-ticket to enter both can be purchased for $30. Outside parking is free and infield parking is $20.

And then on Thursday Nights, Thursday Thunder is back - the first race is June 3. Folks, this is racing at the grassroots, small track level! Some of today's NASCAR stars such as Joey Logano and David Ragan began to carve out their racing careers at Thursday Thunder, and you never know what future star you might see! Plus with all the fun promotions, it's a great way to have a night out with the family! Tickets are $5 and kids ages 6-11 get in for $1!

No matter what form of racing you prefer, you're going to want to be here during the next few months. See you at the track!
