Atlanta Motor Speedway announced today the return of the "Once-in-a-Lifetime" opportunities for the October Bass Pro Shops 500. For a limited time, fans that purchase a three-day public suite ticket will be entered into a drawing for five exciting once-in-a-lifetime race weekend experiences. However, the offer will end on Monday, Aug. 1.

These five different experiences provide fans an opportunity to be part of the Golden Corral 500 weekend and take home a lasting memory of their experience.

One lucky fan will climb into the flag tower and wave the green flag on Georgia-Pacific Qualifying night for one of the many competitors with their foot on the floorboard, searching for the top position on the speed charts.

Another will ride in the pace car on Sunday morning just hours before their favorite driver takes the green flag on the same mile and half of asphalt. These are just two of the five exciting opportunities being offered.

A fan will also be able to earn their rookie stripe with a 'Rookie Experience' from the Richard Petty Driving Experience.

All drivers covet a trip to victory lane and two fans will join the victory lane celebration on Saturday and Sunday from inside the exclusive area that few people, outside sponsors, teams and media ever get to experience first hand.

Ann and Richard Green from Enosburg Falls, Vt. were the lucky fans who got to celebrate in victory lane with Kasey Kahne after his win in the Golden Corral 500.

"It was awesome; truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Ann Green said. "Meeting Kasey Kahne was incredible and I will never forget it. I've been to a lot of tracks and Atlanta is one of the best out there."

A three-day public suite ticket offers fans an opportunity to sit high above the action in one of the climate-controlled suites at Atlanta Motor Speedway. With a continental breakfast and lunch buffet offered along with four drink vouchers each day, fans can relax and enjoy the race day experience.

Suite ticket holders also have the opportunity to wander the pit area until 45 minutes prior to the green flag, watching drivers and their crews as they prepare to take the green flag. Three-day suite ticket packages are $550 each while Sunday-only suite tickets are also available.

These and other great offers for the Bass Pro Shops 500 weekend can be purchased by calling the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office at (770) 946-4211, (877) 9-AMS-TIX (877-926-7849) or by clicking here: Purchase Tickets
