Atlanta Motor Speedway's "Thunder Ring" will roar back to life this Friday, Oct. 23 as Legends cars, Bandoleros and Thunder Roadsters take to the track for the first date of the 2009-10 Winter Flurry Legends Racing Series.

Friday marks the first-of-six Winter Flurry dates and the first Legends race on Atlanta Motor Speedway's quarter-mile oval since the conclusion of the 2009 Thursday Thunder season.

While grandstands will not be open for the Winter Flurry race dates, fans can purchase pit passes for the events. Pit passes can be purchased at the Speedway Security Building near the main entrance to Atlanta Motor Speedway. Pit passes cost $12 for adults, $5 for children ages 11 through six, and admission is free for children ages five and younger.

Friday's hot laps begin at 5:30 p.m. and heat races begin at 6:30 p.m. Feature races will begin immediately following the conclusion of heat races.
