Throughout the weekend, there'll be a plethora of activities in the Fan Zone, located behind the Earnhardt Grandstand, that will include driver appearances, live entertainment, interactive vendor displays and more!
We'll kick the action off Friday with an overload of racing activity that will begin with practice sessions for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series teams. That evening, the action really heats up with the debut of NASCAR's new "knockout" qualifying format at Atlanta Motor Speedway followed by the return of the thundering excitement of the United Sprint Car Series on the quarter-mile "Thunder Ring" on the Speedway frontstretch. You can see all of Friday's action from the grandstands for $20, and kids 12 and under are admitted free with an adult grandstand ticket!

Then, on Sunday, the weekend culminates with 500 miles of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night racing! at the stakes will be even higher for many drivers. While some will be looking for lock in the spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, others will be seeking a strong run to serve as a springboard into the Chase, as was the case for Tony Stewart here in 2012. That year, a top-five finish on Labor Day Weekend springboarded Stewart to a strong start to the Chase on the way to claiming the championship.
