Thursday Thunder

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! 

Winter Flurry

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.

Atlanta's summers will heat up when Thursday Thunder, Atlanta Motor Speedway's weekly racing series takes the green flag for the 2015 season.

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 $6 for adults and $2 for children 6-11 (children under 6 are 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., heat races start at 5:50 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.
