The door-to-door excitement of short track racing greets fans year-round with Legends and Bandolero racing on the 1/4-Mile "Thunder Ring," located on the frontstretch of Atlanta Motor Speedway! Grassroots racing in various divisions occurs year-round with offseason events and the Winter Flurry season in addition to the Thursday Thunder series during the summer months!
Atlanta's summers will heat up when Thursday Thunder, Atlanta Motor Speedway's weekly racing series takes the green flag for the 2014 season.
All grandstands are non-smoking at Thursday Thunder, with smoking being permitted in designated areas near the grandstands.

You can enjoy the excitement of sanctioned auto racing from behind the wheel! Thanks to US Legend Cars and Legends of Georgia, it's easy, affordable and a great source of family fun. Legends Cars are 5/8 scale replicas of classic coupes and sedans of the '30s that were modified into the fordable racing machines of NASCAR's grassroots history. But don't let their size fool you - these are serious race cars powered by 1200cc, 4-cylinder Yamaha engines delivering 122 horsepower - more than enough to give you some major league racing thrills.
Even during the Thursday Thunder offseason, the Legends and Bandolero drivers come to Atlanta Motor Speedway to compete in Winter Flurry, Atlanta Motor Speedway’s off-season Legends racing series.
Infield passes may be purchased at the Security Command building located near the main entrance to Atlanta Motor Speedway. Infield passes are $12 for adults, $5 for ages six through 11, and children ages five and younger are admitted for free.
