Thursday Thunder Legends Series presented by Papa John's Pizza

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! 

All grandstands are non-smoking at Thursday Thunder, with smoking being permitted in designated areas near the grandstands. 

Thursday Thunder is one of the most affordable, exciting family activities in Atlanta. Every Thursday night from early June into late July, a smorgasbord of games, contests, giveaways and hot on-track racing excitement take place at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Tickets are just $5 for adults and ages 5 and under are admitted free for each evening of fun and grass-roots racing on the paved quarter-mile track at AMS, the Thunder Ring. Drivers as young as 8-years-old come from all over the nation to battle each night in eight different classes for the right to be called champions at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Group parties and children's birthday parties are also available during Thursday Thunder. Gates open at 6 p.m., practice begins at 6 p.m. and feature races start at 7:30 p.m. Don't miss this summer's most fun and affordable activity. Come see the region's up and coming drivers each Thursday night at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Call (770) 946-4211 for information or visit www.legendsofga.com.

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.

COMPETITOR WAIVER FORMS MUST BE PRINTED IN COLOR. BLACK AND WHITE COPIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED
