Changing Of Seasons Building Excitement Of What's To Come

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

It's not hard to see the signs of the changing of seasons at Atlanta Motor Speedway. From the windows of our corporate offices overlooking turn four, a nice view of the entire track is offered, which includes the tree lines on the other side of turn two and the trackside terrace. There, leaves are slowly changing color, offering a picturesque reminder of what's to come later this year at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Next month, on Nov. 18 to be exact, we'll be starting off the Christmas season a bit early, but the view will be worth it!

 

That date will mark the start of the first-ever Gift of Lights at Atlanta Motor Speedway - 1.5-miles of more than a million LED lights celebrating the holiday season with a drive-through display of lights.

In the past week, workers have been here on site, getting the display set up in the grandstand concourses and the trackside terrace. Just by driving the route of which all vehicles will go, it's already exciting enough as one thinks about how it'll look lit up! Heck, it almost has a few of us here wanting to break out our favorite Christmas music a little early!

In case you missed it, here's some pics of some of the lights being set up!

Plus, it's only $15 per car. Just go here for more info on what we are looking forward to being the highlight of ours and yours Christmas experience!
