For nine years running, Atlanta Motor Speedway has been the premier destination for heads up, street-style drag racing in the South. O'Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags has quickly become one of the largest organized drag racing series in the nation, thanks to the enthusiasm of all the drivers and their dedication to providing fierce competition every Friday night.

As a token of appreciation to all O'Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags drivers for their continued support, Atlanta Motor Speedway will host the O'Reilly Auto Parts Driver Appreciation Night on Friday, July 17 during Week 12 of the summer racing series.

In addition to earning valuable points in the divisional championship standings, each division winner on O'Reilly Auto Parts Driver Appreciation Night will receive a $50 gift card, good at any O'Reilly Auto Parts store, while each runner up will receive a $25 gift card.

O'Reilly Auto Parts representatives will also be handing out a boatload of promotional items at their display space on the infield to both drivers and fans alike.

All drivers are eligible to receive the prizes, and all normal registration fees will apply for O'Reilly Auto Parts Driver Appreciation Night.

The infield tunnel will open at its normal time of 6 p.m. for drivers, and practice will begin shortly thereafter.
