Like every other race weekend at AMS, the October 2007 weekend will provide fans with three days of heart-pounding racing excitement, capped off when the stars of the NEXTEL Cup Series take the track and battle for 500 miles on Sunday, October 28.

The green flag will drop on the race weekend Friday night, October 26 for the fastest qualifying session in all of NASCAR. Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon and their foes will try to earn the pole position for Sunday's race during Georgia-Pacific Qualifying, under the lights.

Saturday, October 27 will be full of door banging action when the Craftsman Truck Series takes on Atlanta Motor Speedway's high-banks for what promises to be another 200-mile slug-fest.

Sunday, the most talented drivers in the world will race for 500 miles and hopefully propel themselves to the 2007 NEXTEL Cup championship.
