A few weeks ago, mere hours prior to a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event, Jimmie Johnson appeared at a “Tweet-up,” an in-person gathering of fans who communicate with one another on Twitter. Johnson making himself that accessible to fans casts a bright light on one of the many enhancements to the fan experience that only comes by being at the track.

Sure, you can crank up the surround sound on your TV at home or keep up with the action on your computer, but nothing replaces the atmosphere and electricity of simply being at the track. Driver appearances are but one of many parts of Labor Day Weekend that fans can only experience by being at the track.

These drivers are the best of the best drivers in the entire world and the heroes of so many fans. For the ordinary fan, it’s not likely that you’ll meet Peyton Manning before an Indianapolis Colts game or LeBron James before an NBA game. But it’s not uncommon to see NASCAR drivers in the midst of the Fan Zone area just hours before their strap in for 500 miles of white-knuckled racing.

During race weekend, as an exclusive offer to our Club One customers, we’ll have some of NASCAR’s top drivers visiting for intimate Q&As. And they’ll be there within hours of hitting the track for either practice or a race, which means racing will be weighing heavily on their minds when they’ll be visiting with fans! 

Justin Allgaier and Reed Sorenson will be in Club One on Friday, David Ragan on Saturday with Kyle Busch in addition to Mark Martin, driver of the No. 5 Chevrolet on Sunday.

Right now is an exciting time to be around Atlanta Motor Speedway. Not only is the AdvoCare 500 Labor Day Night Race Weekend fast approaching, but also a handful of NASCAR drivers are showing everyone the caliber of racers, which Thursday Thunder has produced! 

Since we began to hold races on our ¼-mile “Thunder Ring” in 1998, numerous drivers have competed in Legends and Bandolero cars through the years. Some of those drivers have, vaulted by the experience gained from racing on summer Thursday nights here at the Speedway, moved up among the NASCAR ranks.
