Following the announcement of the special Tony Stewart vs. Matt Kenseth ticket promotion on Monday, fans have jumped at the opportunity to choose their side in the disagreement, while saving a substantial sum on fronstretch tickets at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Through Sunday night’s AdvoCare 500, Stewart fans purchasing three Lower Champions Grandstand tickets will receive their fourth ticket for only $14 while Kenseth followers can receive their fourth ticket for only $17, representing savings of $85 and $82, respectively. The ticket prices reflect the car numbers for both drivers involved in the much talked-about crash while racing for the lead in Saturday’s Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol.

The special pricing is for start/finish line area seats in rows 1-23 of the Champions Grandstand. Tickets may be purchased online at, through the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office at (877) 9-AMS-TIX, at Ticketmaster outlets or in-person at the AMS ticket office or ticket windows this weekend.

So far, whether by fan popularity or a simple savings in cost, Stewart leads Kenseth in ticket purchases. This vote is sure to continue through the weekend.

Triple Duty for Kyle Busch at Atlanta Motor Speedway

For the first time in 2012, Kyle Busch will climb behind the wheel of his No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports Toyota in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this weekend at Atlanta. Busch is a four-time winner in the Truck Series at AMS, in addition to a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory in 2008.

Busch will again participate in all three nights of racing at AMS this weekend, starting with the Jeff Foxworthy’s Grit Chips 200 on Friday night. On Saturday, Busch will pilot his KBM Toyota in the NRA American Warrior 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race, an event Busch has yet to win.

Capping off the weekend, Busch will put his familiar No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing machine on the track to battle for another NASCAR Sprint Cup Series win at AMS in the AdvoCare 500. Busch is currently the second wild-card for the Chase for the Sprint Cup, and is in desperate need of a victory to lock himself into the Chase.
