Thursday Thunder stands out as a series with a storied pedigree. Over the years fans have seen the likes of Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, David Ragan, and Reed Sorenson cut their teeth on the tricky ¼-mile and before continuing on to race at the highest levels of motorsports.

When the 2020 season starts, spectators will not be able to attend due to social distancing guidelines, however, fans will still be able to see all the close-quarters racing the Thunder Ring is known for.

Atlanta Motor Speedway plans to produce live streams of each event that fans will be able to view free of charge on the Atlanta Motor Speedway Facebook page for as long as spectators are unable to attend. 

In addition to running without spectators in attendance, social distancing guidelines will be in effect in the garage area for competitors.

*All competitors, crew members, and parents MUST wear masks/facial coverings while in the Credentials Building and while watching the races from Upper Pit Road and Victory Lane.*
