The Atlanta Motor Speedway pace car will be making a number of in-market promotional appearances in coming weeks to promote the Speedway’s Labor Day weekend of NASCAR night racing and summer racing series.

 The AMS pace car will appear at four local events in the coming month and select appearances will also include giveaways and chances to win tickets to upcoming Speedway events. Fans are encouraged to attend the events for chances to win, meet the Speedway’s staff, and discuss NASCAR and the upcoming Thursday Thunder and Friday Night Drags seasons at AMS.

 In addition to the pace car, Atlanta Motor Speedway president Ed Clark will serve as Grand Marshal for Locust Grove Days on Saturday, April 24. The event will include a local parade ending at the Locust Grove City Hall Complex where the pace car will be displayed and the event festivities will take place. The AMS Events staff will also have giveaways for race fans at the event.

 Following Locust Grove Days, the AMS pace car will make an appearance at the Geranium Fun Run benefiting Speedway Children’s Charities on Saturday, May 1 and will take place at the JC Penney in McDonough. The event also helps to kick off McDonough’s Geranium Festival month of May, where the pace car will also appear on Saturday, May 15. The Geranium Festival will take place in McDonough Square and the Speedway’s appearance will feature an enter-to-win ticket contest and giveaways at the event.

 The AMS pace car is also slated to appear at Lauren’s Run & CURE Childhood Cancer Picnic on May 2 at Concourse Office Park in Atlanta.

 In addition to these community events, the Speedway’s pace car will appear at select Monday Night Cruise-In car shows at Summit Racing in McDonough beginning on Monday, May 3 and running through September.
