Atlanta Motor Speedway will host an information meeting for parties interested in competing in the Speedway's newest short-track racing division, Buzz Cars, on Monday night, April 4 at 6:30 p.m.
The meeting will include specific details on the new affordable racing division and guidance on vehicle modifications in advance of the class' first-ever exhibition race on Sunday, April 10. The meeting will take place in the Atlanta Motor Speedway Infield Media Center at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, April 4.
"The Buzz Cars concept has been very well received. The fun nature of the racing will appeal to our fans and add a new show to our short-track racing program," said Atlanta Motor Speedway president and general manager Ed Clark. "The vehicles are really affordable and easy to prepare, so we hope to see some new racers in stock cars beating and banging on the 'Thunder Ring' each week."
Following the April 10 exhibition race, the Buzz Cars will be integrated into the points racing action at Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder, the track's family-friendly and affordable summer racing series, beginning on June 2.
The Buzz Cars class will provide racing enthusiasts with an inexpensive entry into the fun and spirited world of short-track racing. The division rules are designed to ensure competitive racing and maintain low costs for competitors. Drivers will compete in four-cylinder stock cars and are allowed to make minimal upgrades with an emphasis on safety.
Drivers are encouraged to utilize local automobile auctions and discount sales to purchase inexpensive vehicles that can easily be altered for the Buzz Cars division. Complete Buzz Cars rules, including necessary safety modifications, can be found online at www.atlantamotorspeedway.com/events/thunder/.

While grandstands are not open for the off-season race, fans can purchase Infield passes at the Security Command building near the Speedway's main entrance.
