For most of us, there are moments when we’re younger which play a big part in shaping who we are later in life. One of those times for me came when I was about 11 years old. On my first visit to a NASCAR track, I received a fast and rousing introduction to stock car racing. When I entered the grandstand, the first stop was not to our seats to watch final practice – it was right next to the catch fence, where I received a rather vivid idea of how fast and loud stock cars are.

But as loud as it was that day, that moment helped birth a passion for racing that’s still burning pretty strong today. That’s exactly what we have in mind at AMS with our NASCAR Fans of Tomorrow promotion for Labor Day Weekend!

After each race weekend, part of my job combing through all of the photos from race weekend. Among those are shots of young kids simply having fun at the track – kind of like many of us here did the first time we went to a race.

With our Fans of Tomorrow ticket special, all kids ages 12 and under get in free to both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday of Labor Day weekend, Sept. 2., as well as the Great Clips 300 Nationwide Series race on Saturday. Sept. 3. An adult general admission ticket must accompany all kids 12 and under.

And there’s no limit to the number of kids you may bring, so if you’ve got a youth sports team, scouting group or any other gathering of kids 12 and under, bring them all to Atlanta Motor Speedway on race weekend! It’s a great way to either have a great time with the young race fan in your family or build race fans of the future!

We have a very exciting schedule of activities planned for Labor Day Weekend when NASCAR Night Racing makes its return to Atlanta Motor Speedway, and the events at the track on Friday and Saturday are a significant part of it!

You can get your tickets for Labor Day Weekend by calling our ticket office at 877-9-AMS-TIX or going to www.atlantamotorspeedway.com! You can attend all three nights of racing for a combined cost of as low as $84!
