Papa John's Pizza has renewed its partnership with AMS for three additional years as the official and exclusive pizza of Atlanta Motor Speedway.

A longtime partner of AMS, the Papa John's Pizza sponsorship resume includes the annual July Fourth Papa John's Pizza Fireworks Extravaganza, one of the largest Independence Day Weekend fireworks shows in metro Atlanta, AMS's Friday Night Drags summer drag racing series and various partnerships surrounding the annual February NASCAR weekend.

Beginning in 2016, Papa John's Pizza will serve as the official entitlement sponsor of Atlanta Motor Speedway's summer Thursday Thunder quarter-mile Legends and Bandolero racing series, which will enter its 19th consecutive year. The series will be officially known as the Thursday Thunder Legends Series presented by Papa John's Pizza and will consist of eight race dates in June and July.

"We are excited to have renewed our partnership as the official and exclusive pizza of Atlanta Motor Speedway," said Bobby Meroney, operations vice president of Papa John's Atlanta co-op. "It's a pleasure to fuel the NASCAR fans all race weekend long, from Thursday Thunder to NASCAR Sunday."
