This weekend, NASCAR returns to the all-new Atlanta Motor Speedway for the second time this season for the Quaker State 400 presented by Walmart and Alsco Uniforms 250.
There are 650 NASCAR miles between these two races, but the Atlanta race weekend is full of fun even when the cars aren’t on the track. Here are some fun activities fans won’t want to miss while at AMS this weekend:
Atlanta Motor Speedway and Fr8Auctions have teamed up to bring a mix of music to NASCAR’s summer weekend with the Revs & Riffs NASCAR Weekend Music Festival presented by Fr8Auctions.
The music festival runs alongside the race weekend, featuring musical performances that begin on Friday night and continue throughout the weekend. From the Fan Zone to the campsites to the front stage, fans will enjoy performances spanning a variety of genres, including pre-race concerts by Candlebox on Saturday and Flo Rida on Sunday.
Pit Boss Camper Appreciation Party presented by Walmart
Fans nurture great times and unforgettable memories at Atlanta Motor Speedway, which is why the track kicks off the summer weekend with the Pit Boss Camper Appreciation Party presented by Walmart.
Speedway and its partners will treat campers staying at the track to free burgers, hot dogs and Coca-Cola drinks at The Gathering Place at the Legends Campground. Special guests like NASCAR Cup Series driver Aric Almirola and “America’s Crew Chief” Larry McReynolds will even stop by, and some lucky fans will go home with great prizes. To top it all off, the Garrett Collins Project will perform the first musical act of the weekend.
Before any of NASCAR’s stars take to the track, fans can take their own vehicles to Atlanta’s 28-degree turns and take the first laps of the race weekend under the lights.
With a donation to Speedway Children’s Charities Atlanta, participants will be able to drive three laps of the 1.54-mile track behind the Atlanta Motor Speedway’s speed car. Fans can register to participate online at www.speedwaycharities.org/atlanta/.
Atlanta Motor Speedway’s Free Fan Zone
Before you walk through the gates, there’s plenty to see and do in the free Fan Zone from cool partner displays, to fun and games in the Kids Zone, to free activities like ax throwing and more.
Additionally, the Quaker State Fan Stage is home to driver appearances throughout the weekend, as well as musical performances by Mark Wills and the Leah Belle Faser Band.
Peach Pit Presented by Dixie Vodka
When the competition is over, the party is just getting started at the Peach Pit presented by Dixie Vodka on Saturday night.
This backyard party is full of entertainment like mechanical bulls, a corn hole, laser lights and fireworks to end the night. Best of all, Georgia’s Blackberry Smoke will be performing on the Peach Pit stage.
Family Movie Night at Bruton Smith Park
Fans looking for a more family-friendly activity on Saturday night after the Alsco Uniforms 250 can enjoy the free movie night at Bruton Smith Park near the Family Campgrounds.
Families in attendance will enjoy the movie Cars and free snacks provided by Cheez It Puff’d when the movie starts at 8:45 p.m.
These are just the highlights of a fun-filled weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Tickets and camping spots for this weekend’s racing and entertainment are available at www.AtlantaMotorSpeedway.com.
