Fans looking to gain access not normally afforded to the casual customer can do so when they take their own vehicle on the famed high banks of the 1.54-mile speedway, as well as enjoy a full Legends racing program, on Saturday, April 27 as part of the speedway’s “Drive the Track Day.”
Beginning at 10:00 a.m., those that have purchased a ticket to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series AdvoCare 500 on Sunday, Sept. 1 will be able to take a few hot laps around the speedway. Tickets will be available for purchase at the AMS Ticket Office, and those that have already purchased their AdvoCare 500 ticket can stop by the Ticket Office to pick up their pass to ride the track. A $30 donation to the Atlanta chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities will also grant access to the on-track portion of the day.
While on the speedway’s infield, visitors will have the opportunity to visit victory lane, where each race winner at the speedway climbs out of their machine during the Labor Day weekend. There, AMS guests will be able to have their photo made with the pace car, Atlanta’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series trophy, as well as our lively mascot, Monkey Wrench.
Then at 2:00 p.m., those in attendance will be able to watch the afternoon’s scheduled Legends and Bandolero race from the infield, which will take place on the speedway’s quarter-mile “Thunder Ring,” located on the frontstretch. The event will be a full race program, featuring all divisions that race in the “Thursday Thunder” summer series, with some of racing’s future stars taking part in the action.
