Atlanta Motor Speedway (formerly Atlanta International Raceway) is a 1.5-mile race track in Hampton, Georgia, United States, 20 miles (32 km) south of Atlanta. It has annually hosted NASCAR Cup Series stock car races since its inauguration in 1960.

The venue was bought by Speedway Motorsports in 1990. In 1994, 46 condominiums were built over the northeastern side of the track. In 1997, to standardize the track with Speedway Motorsports' other two intermediate ovals, the entire track was almost completely rebuilt. The frontstretch and backstretch were swapped, and the configuration of the track was changed from oval to quad-oval, with a new official length of 1.54-mile (2.48 km) where before it was 1.522-mile (2.449 km). The project made the track one of the fastest on the NASCAR circuit. It has a seating capacity of 71,000 - 125.000 depending on configuration.

  • Fascinating experience. Always travel with family and friends who want to spend time touring in the pits. Beautiful speedway with an enthusiastic and high energy group of fans, staff, vendors, investors, students and sponsors. *Parking: Ample and controlled for easy in and out.* Large Marquee and so much to explore with great ease. Historical facilities and souvenirs for all ranges of inquisitive intellects or those just wanting to have out on the track fun. Did you ever see a *Mini Cooper* group making their way across the United States? The variations are phenomenal. Have fun at the races & be safe. Ciao.
  • Great experience at Rusty Wallace driving experience. Very professional and knowledgeable staff. After watching video of my ride, I had to reduce my rating. If you buy video package make them let you watch it, what I got ain't what I paid for after TRUSTING them to make sure it was good. Had video of a previous driver along wit part of my drive, very dissatisfied with it.
