At 5 p.m., Lynyrd Skynyrd will get you wound up for the race with the Fast Cars & Guitars Pre-Race Concert! You can still purchase stagefront passes for $59, which also give you stagefront access!

Then, it’ll be time to drop the green flag!

Throughout the day, there is so much to do in the Fan Zone, including a handful of driver Q&As with fans at the Team Chevy display, activities for fans at the Sprint Experience, an opportunity to win an Ipad a the AdvoCare display or get free health screenings at the Emory Healthcare tent!

Day 2 at the AMS was awesome...I think going to AMS for your birthday is about the best present any nascar fan could ask for. WTG Carl on the win.
