Atlanta Motor Speedway wants to give a lucky fan the chance to win an “all access” experience at the Emory Healthcare 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series night race on Sunday night, Sept. 5.
The “All Access at AMS” contest will give fans the chance to win exclusive access for the Emory Healthcare 500, including: two suite tickets; NASCAR garage access; Victory Lane access; NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers meeting entrance; and two Pre-Race Party Passes, giving the winning fan stagefront access for a pre-race Foreigner concert and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver introductions.
To enter to win the “All Access at AMS” contest, fans simply need to register online at www.atlanamotorspeedway.com/50. One fan will be randomly selected as the winner on Friday, Aug. 20.
“All Access at AMS” is the fifth in a series of online contests giving fans the chance to win exclusive prizes and race weekend upgrades to commemorate Atlanta Motor Speedway’s 50th Anniversary season. Fans can still enter to win in the “50 For Our Fans” contest at www.atlanamotorspeedway.com/50, giving fans the chance to win a prize a day for 50 days until Aug. 20.
The local connection:
Six major NASCAR tracks are within a day’s drive of Tampa. That really doesn’t qualify a track as local, but when considering speed and good times – distance isn’t always an obstacle. With the proper definition somewhat distant racetracks become local if the enthusiasm of fans is calculated before miles are measured. Great destinations justify journeys.
Tampa local racetrack definition (Fan bias included):
Popular motorsports venues are considered local if they aren’t more than a 10 hour drive from Tampa.
NASCAR racetracks — [Miles] [Route] [Travel time by car]
Daytona International Speedway [140 miles] [I-75 E – 2 ½ hours]
Homestead-Miami Speedway [300 miles] [I-75 S – 5 hours]
Atlanta Motor Speedway [440 miles] [I-75 N – 7 hours]
Darlington Raceway [525 miles] [I-95 N – 9 hours]
Talladega Superspeedway [570 miles] [I-75 N – 9 ½ hours]
Charlotte Motor Speedway [600 miles] [I-95 N – 10 hours]
