Atlanta Motor Speedway Gives Fans a Chance to Be on SPEED’s “NASCAR Smarts”
Atlanta Motor Speedway wants to test your NASCAR knowledge and will give 10 fans the chance to be on “NASCAR Smarts” on SPEED during Atlanta Motor Speedway Emory Healthcare 500 race weekend on Sept. 3-5.
Ten fans selected at random will win a behind the scenes tour from SPEED at Atlanta Motor Speedway during the track’s Labor Day NASCAR night racing weekend. The winners will then return to the SPEED stage where they will take a “NASCAR Smarts” written quiz. The top-two performers on the quiz will be featured on “NASCAR Smarts” on SPEED, where they will partner with either Kyle Petty or Rutledge Wood to compete on the NASCAR trivia television show on Saturday, Sept. 4.
To enter to win the “NASCAR Smarts with SPEED” contest, fans simply need to register online at www.atlanamotorspeedway.com/50 on or before Aug. 25. The 10 fans will be selected by random on Aug. 26.
“NASCAR Smarts with SPEED” is the sixth 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 additional promotions at www.atlanamotorspeedway.com/50, including “All Access at AMS” or “50 For Our Fans,” giving fans the chance to win a prize a day for 50 days until Aug. 20.
The biggest Labor Day party in the USA is at Atlanta Motor Speedway for the Emory Healthcare 500 race weekend on Sept. 3 -5. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact the Atlanta Motor Speedway Ticket Office at (770) 946-4211, (877) 9-AMS-TIX, or visit www.atlantamotorspeedway.com.
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]
