Atlanta Motor Speedway (formerly Atlanta International Raceway) is a 1.54-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. In July 2021 NASCAR announced that the track would be reprofiled for the 2022 season to have 28 degrees (previously 24 degrees) of banking and would be narrowed from 55 to 40 feet which the track claims will turn racing at the track similar to restrictor plate superspeedways. Despite the reprofiling being criticized by drivers, construction began in August 2021 and wrapped up in December 2021. The track has seating capacity of 71,000 to 125,000 people depending on the tracks configuration.

  • Great facility, I have been here many, many times. The is no such thing as a bad seat. Family friendly area where alcohol is not permitted. The track respects your seats and checks to make sure fans are sat where they should be. They have a volunteer group of track Ambassadors who will do everything they can to make sure you have a good time. 2022 the great race weekend fully enjoyed it the new pavement of produce some very spectacular racing
  • For such a short drive, the Atlanta Motor Speedway is a great sport! If you love fast cars! The event is for 3 days. There are lots of vendors and you can meet your favorite drivers! Definitely. A family event!
