Atlanta Motor Speedway and Lanier Speedway have partnered to host The Georgia Crown with a $5,000 purse for Legends competitors on Saturday, Aug. 14 at Lanier Speedway in Braselton.

The Georgia Crown will award a $5,000 purse to the top-15 finishing Legends competitors in The Georgia Crown points series, including $2,000 to the winner of the race. Legends competitors must enter a minimum of five summer racing events at both Atlanta Motor Speedway and Lanier Speedway to qualify for the Georgia Crown. If a competitor has not raced in at least 10 summer events and five at each facility, the driver will not be eligible to compete.

In addition to cash prizes, the champion of The Georgia Crown will also win suite tickets to Atlanta Motor Speedway's Labor Day NASCAR night racing event and will be introduced on the Pre-Race Stage prior to the start of the race.

Competitors will amass INEX points at each of the tracks during the 2010 season and their total INEX points (minus their two worst finishes at each track) will be combined with qualifying points to determine each competitor's starting position in The Georgia Crown heat races. Heat race finishes will determine the final lineup for The Georgia Crown race.

Legends classes will be combined for The Georgia Crown.

In addition to The Georgia Crown race, Bandolero competitors will compete for prizes in lieu of a cash purse. The Bandolero feature will mirror the Legends event in format and Bandolero classes will be combined for the race. The winner of the Bandolero feature will also win suite passes to Atlanta Motor Speedway's Labor Day NASCAR night racing event and will be introduced on the Pre-Race Stage.
