AMS to host road course series finale at Atlanta Motorsports Park
Atlanta Motor Speedway will host the Week 4 championship finale of its newly debuted road course racing series at Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP) in Dawsonville on Saturday, Sept. 26. The venue, a fast, technical 1.14-mile course will add variety to the series and offer drivers a rare opportunity to sharpen their road course driving skills on a new layout.
AMP is home to a variety of racing series, karting experiences and several driving schools and will open its doors to officially sanctioned U.S. Legends and Bandolero racing for the first time in its history.
On-track action will kick off with practice sessions beginning at 9:20 a.m., and heat races are set to roll off at 11:15 a.m. Feature races will then take to the track, beginning with Bandolero classes followed by Legends classes and finally, Thunder Roadsters.
Competitor entry is $30 per driver, and spectator garage admission will be available for $20 for adults, $5 for kids ages 6 to 11 and free for kids 5 and under.
Following the final feature race, an awards presentation to recognize the division champions will take place at the nearby Georgia Racing Hall of Fame. The ceremony is open to the public and will include a meal for $3.
Atlanta Motor Speedway has hosted U.S. Legends and Bandolero racing for 18 consecutive years since its inaugural season on the quarter-mile Thunder Ring in 1998. Among its notable alumni, current NASCAR drivers include 2015 Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano, 2014 XFINITY Series champion and Dawsonville native Chase Elliott, David Ragan, Reed Sorensen, Austin Dillon and Darrel Wallace, Jr.
