Atlanta Motor Speedway's second week of Thursday Thunder gave fans twice as many races for their money. Competitors ran double feature races, week three's features were preceded by the make-up races from week one's postponement. Also included in the evening's lineup was a golf-cart mascot race between local area mascots.

The M&S Auto Bandits feature began with Alex Coffey on the point. Clayton Weatherman kept right on Coffey's rear bumper. Coffey got caught up in lapped traffic, allowing Weatherman to make the pass for the lead. After a restart following a caution, the leader got loose off of turn two and allowed the top-five cars to drag race down the backstretch for the top spot. There wasn't enough real estate, causing a multi-car incident in the middle of turns three and four. John Holleman restarted the race as the leader and led the remaining circuits to log his first Thursday Thunder career win.

Davey Matthews paced the field to the start for the Young Lions feature. On lap two, Donald McIntosh made the pass in turn two to become the point man. Matthews battled back one lap later in the same spot to regain the lead. Matthews got loose at the start-finish line coming to lap four, allowing McIntosh to re-assume the lead. Matthews remained in striking distance to McIntosh and on lap 17 took back the position and scored his sixth Thursday Thunder win.

The Roadsters feature began with Adam Gay as the pole-sitter. Gay led every circuit to claim his first Thursday Thunder win.

Evan Bell was the point-man for the combined Young Guns and J.J. Morley Outlaws feature. Matthew Linker edged his way to the front by lap six. Linker rocketed away from the rest of the field. Linker, week two's winner, took the checkered flag to score back-to-back wins. Garrett Smithley was the top finishing J.J. Morley Outlaw.

The Masters feature began with Skip Nichols holding the advantage. Nichols made the most of that advantage and led every lap to score his 21st Thursday Thunder career win.

Austin Hill was the pole-sitter for the Pro division feature. Hill was the class of the field, leading every circuit to post his 11th Thursday Thunder feature win.

The Semi-Pro feature had Jonathan Chandler pacing the field to the green. Jacob Armstrong kept pace with the leader, but lap after lap was unable to make the pass. Chandler was strong, keeping Armstrong at bay, and went on to log his seventh career Thursday Thunder feature win.

The evening of racing continued with week three feature races, run in the same order as the beginning of the night.

M&S Auto Bandits feature began with Clayton Weatherman on the pole. Weatherman led every lap and posted the win. This was his first Thursday Thunder win and came right on the heels of his brother, Kyle's first win last week.

Donald McIntosh paced the field to the start for the Young Lions feature. On lap 16, Evan Swilling dove to the inside of McIntosh entering turn three becoming the leader and the eventual race winner. Swilling earned his second Thursday Thunder feature win.

The 3rd Annual Mascot Mania golf cart race was up next. Competitors included Pounce from Georgia State University, Buzz from Georgia Tech, Chopper from the Gwinnett Braves, Aaron's Lucky Dog, Bubba the Bear from 92.5 FM The Bear (WEKS-FM), Ice Box's Ping with AMS' own Monkey Wrench. The mascots piloted Peachtree City golf carts, but the race was so chaotic that a winner was never determined.

The Roadsters started with last week's winner Chris Cable out front. Brian Meredith worked Cable over lap after lap, but was unable to challenge for the top spot. Cable pulled away and crossed the finish line first, posting back-to-back wins; his 13th in his Thursday Thunder career.

Again, the Young Guns and the J.J. Morley Outlaws divisions combined for their feature races. Joey Padgett led the field to take the green flag. Coming off turn two on lap one, Padgett got loose, opening up the inside lane for Evan Bell to take the top spot. Despite a hard-charging Matt Linker, Bell captured the win, totaling four career Thursday Thunder wins.

Ed Clark had the pole-position for the Masters feature. In the first turn, Skip Nichols edged by Clark in the outside lane to become the race leader. Last week's winner, Jeff Haynie, muscled his way past Nichols on lap 12. Haynie logged his 11th career Thursday Thunder victory.

The Pro feature started with Bubby Harry as the pole sitter. On lap eight, Justin Swilling nudged Harry out of the way to grab the lead. Three laps later, Zach Kittle made his move past Swilling to become the race leader, holding on to make his first trip to Victory Lane in his Thursday Thunder career.

Mike Weed was the starter for the Semi-Pro feature. On lap three, Jonathan Chandler maneuvered his way through the field to take over the point. On lap 15, Jake Armstrong spun out the race leader, allowing Cody Haskins to move up to the top spot. Haskins posted back-to-back wins, after winning in week two.

David Wilkerson paced the field to the start for the Legends Promoter's Choice race, but by lap one, Matthew Johnson was on the point. Johnson was the victor, making his first trip to Victory Lane.

The Bandolero Promoter's Choice race began with Madeline Crane as the pole-sitter. Crane led every lap to be crowned the winner.
