Happy August, race fans! This is Atlanta Motor Speedway President & GM Ed Clark!

You're probably familiar with the old Christmas song, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." Here at Atlanta Motor Speedway, we have our own ideas about what the best time of the year is. It's this month! August has arrived, better known as "Race Month" at Atlanta Motor Speedway!

At times, it seemed as if this time of year would never arrive. But as it always does, time has flown by. Later this month, NASCAR night racing returns to Atlanta Motor Speedway! We're excited about all of our fans that will be here from both far and away!

If you bought your tickets months in advance, the wait for race weekend probably compares to the wait for Christmas to arrive. And if you haven't bought your tickets yet and are planning to, it's an exciting thought to consider when putting together your plans to join us Labor Day Weekend!

If you take a quick walk around our offices these days, it's easy to tell that race weekend is getting closer. Folks are scurrying around a lot more quickly. Everyone is doing things at a much more feverish pace as both large and small details regarding make race weekend a first-class experience are solidified.

Everything that is done at Atlanta Motor Speedway is geared toward creating lasting memories and giving all of our fans a first-class experience. So much goes into turning Atlanta Motor Speedway into one of the state's largest cities during Labor Day Weekend.

But when we look out over the massive crowd that comes here year after year and see all of the fun that they are having, all of what we do is worth it.

We can't wait to see you later this month!
