Atlanta Motor Speedway boasts one of the most historic and well-known tracks on the circuit and is popular among fans and drivers alike.
Atlanta Motor Speedway's 1.54-mile oval, which underwent its last repave in 1997, is a favorite among many competitors due to its challenging nature. The iconic, aged surface, slick conditions, and multiple racing grooves offers a unique challenge for drivers, who have to maneuver slick corners and fast straightaways, and has produced several of NASCAR's most iconic races and closest finishes to date.
NASCAR will be making its return to Atlanta Motor Speedway the weekend of February 23-25, 2018, featuring Saturday's XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series same-day doubleheader, as well as Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500.
