UPDATE FROM US:  I can honestly say traffic is no big deal anymore at Atlanta.  We have left just 2 hours after the checkered flag and we sat in no traffic to get to I-75.  I think the police and speedway officials finally have it figured out!

Getting there 2015

I-75 South to Exit #235 (15 miles South of downtown Atlanta) and continue on U.S. Highway 19 & 41 for 15 miles.

If traffic is backed up at Exit #235  travel South on I-75 to Exit #218. GA 20 West  follow signs to Speedway. (15 miles)

I-75 North to Exit #205. GA 16 West into Griffin. U.S. Highway 19 & 41 North to Speedway.

I-75 North to Exit #218. GA 20 West to Speedway. I-75 North  to Exit #205. GA 16 West into Griffin. U.S. Highway 19 & 41 North to Speedway. (20 miles)

I-75  to Exit #212. Hampton-Locust Grove Road West to GA 20. GA 20 to Speedway. (15 miles)

FROM JOANIE: As a local, I HIGHLY recommend using GA20 (I75, exit 218) to get to the track instead of hwy 19/41 (Tara Blvd) from exit 235. The traffic moves swiftly and the State troopers have it down to a near science.

UPDATE FROM A NICE FAN PBRED8 (THANKS): On race day coming From the north (Atlanta), avoid US 41/ Tara Blvd at all costs

2) One alternate is to stay on I-75 going south to Exit 205, GA 16 (Griffin/ Jackson) turn East on 16 to downtown Griffin and pick up US 41 in Griffin and proceed north to the track. The reverse is a good way out after the race.

3) Get off I-75 south @ the GA 85( 4 lane) exit just south of I-285 and proceed thru Riverdale to Fayetteville and turn SE on GA 92 to track (follow signs)


When approaching the Speedway from the south on US Highways 19 & 41, take Speedway Blvd. into the track. Stay in the right lane of US Highways 19 & 41 for Entrance A.

If heading north on Highways 19 & 41, use the Main Entrance of Richard Petty Blvd. Stay in the far left counterflow lane of US Highways 19 & 41. MAPS

201 EXITING ROUTES: ( To I-75)

Take Speedway Blvd. to U.S. Highway 19 & 41 and head north. Continue north through Jonesboro to I-75 or head east on McDonough Road to I-75.

Fans can also take the Main exit of the Speedway and bear north or south on Highway 19 & 41. For those who head north on US Highway 19 & 41, pass through Jonesboro to I-75 or head east on McDonough Road to I-75. For those going south (right lane only) on US Highway 19 & 41, follow signs to Griffin and follow GA 16 to I-75.

For those exiting via Richard Petty Blvd., take US Highway 19 & 41 north or south. If heading north on US Highway 19 & 41, continue through Jonesboro to I-75 or head east at McDonough Road to I-75. Bearing south, take US Highway 19 & 41 and follow the signs to Griffin, then take GA 16 to I-75.

If exiting west on Richard Petty Blvd, take Woolsey Road and head West to GA 92 and bear north or south. Heading south, take GA 92 to US Highway 19 & 41 and follow the signs to Griffin, then take GA 16 to I-75. Heading north on GA 92, follow 92 to GA 85.


Laidback Racing Tip: Do not park on Atlanta Speedway property unless you are directly in the parking lot on the front stretch.  We do not care that it is free.
DO NOT PARK ON THE BACK STRETCH (unless you are going west)
This is where they funnel the infield traffic out of the infield and it is a cluster F*#%. You are better off looking at that detailed map and parking on the US Hwy or GA state road that will take you to the interstate you need to go home.  Remember turn your car around to face the route you will take to leave the track. There are people parking fans in their yards along these roads for between $5.00 & $15.00.    

RESERVED PARKING: Reserved parking for passenger cars is available for race weekend directly behind Champions Grandstand or Weaver Grandstand for $75 per event.   

The entire speedway is surrounded by free parking if you are just there for the day.

Call the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office now at (770) 946-4211 to reserve your camping spaces.


All along Richard Petty Blvd. is free parking.  It is easier to get out of Dodge after the race if you park along this road instead of heading into the parking lots.  Many of the areas on the side of the road have enough room to tailgate next to your car.  REMEMBER to turn your car around and park on the side of the road so you are heading out.

Also, even though there are signs all along Hwy 19/41 that have NO PARKING this goes out the window on race day.  Fans park all along Hwy 19/41...didn't see one single parking ticket.

On Hwy 19/41 is Eagle's Landing Family Practice which is closed on the weekend.  People parked there for free.  This is almost right across from Richard Petty Blvd. and good if you are in the East Turn or sitting in turn 4.  You won't get caught in much of the speedway parking traffic here

The First National Bank is right across from the main entrance which is also closed on the weekend. People parked there for free.  Also there is a street across from the main entrance, Oak Street and that is where Jimmy and I used to park back when the frontstretch was the back stretch.        

Across from Speedway Blvd. on the opposite side of Hwy 19/41 is a large field with parking for $15.00.  Port O Potties

Also, I recommend Oak Street (directly across from the main entrance) for parking as you can get out of dodge quick by following Oak away from Hwy 19/41


RESERVED PARKING: Reserved parking for passenger cars is available for race weekend directly behind Champions Grandstand for $75 per event.   

The entire speedway is surrounded by free parking if you are just there for the day.

Call the Atlanta Motor Speedway ticket office now at (770) 946-4211 to reserve your camping spaces.

Infield Parking for those camping on the infield can be purchased for $50.

HANDICAPPED PARKING: Handicap parking is available in front of the ticket office, the Elliott parking lot, Champions parking lot and on the front row of all general public parking lots. Handicap transportation is available at all gates. If you have any special handling needs, please notify us at 770-707-7904 prior to arriving at the track for information and directions.


We have been there around 20 times in the past.   Atlanta was reshaped a few years ago.   Atlanta used to be a flat oval.  Now it is the ever popular (to the builders), ever getting on my nerves, 1.5 mile D-Shaped Tri-Oval.  However they didn't kill this track.  Enough of it's old personality still comes through which separates it from other 1.5 mile D-Shaped Tri-Ovals. While it is a cookie-cutter track, there is something that separates it from the others that have been built recently.  It's old personality just won't go away.  It is fast.  Real fast.  Also has multiple grooves. 

Please for your own good carry a detailed map that shows US Hwys and State roads.  This is a good tip for any older track you attend a race. There are back roads that leave the track and can take you to the interstate you need while bypassing the city of Atlanta.

All that being said let me tell you; Atlanta Speedway is FUN.  Even though we finally had enough of bad weather in the mid 90's to put Atlanta on hold, when we went back in the fall of 2003 I remembered immediately why I liked this track so much. The racing is great.  The facility is TOP NOTCH like all of Bruton's that I have been to.  The fans are the best.  Lord, the bubbas & bubbates are out in full force at Atlanta Speedway.  WHAT A SHOW in the parking lots.  Makes the rain easier to take.

UPDATE FROM US: FINALLY, I can honestly say traffic was no big deal any longer.  We left just 2 hours after the checkered flag and we sat in no traffic to get to I-75 after the last 4 races.  I think the police and speedway officials finally have it figured out!


All seating that I could see were the new aluminium bench seating.  Standard amount of room like most tracks - NOT ENOUGH!  I hate when those stupid bench seats are only around 9 inches deep.  Even Jimmy's narrow ass is deeper than 9 inches!

In the old days we used to say: THE HIGH THE SEAT THE BETTER THE VIEW.  That was when the grandstands went up maybe to row 30 and there were no towers above that.  However this is simply not true anymore with grandstands & towers that go up 5 to 10 stories.  You only need to sit high enough to see the whole track.  After that it is a waste of money, energy & time because you are getting further away from the track.  I have been on the top row of some towers and could not tell whose car was whose.  I went down to the lower grandstand and sat where I could see the whole track and the view was a helluva lot better! 

There are no bad seats at Atlanta Motor Speedway.  I think it has to do with the infield almost being sunk in.  When Bruton Flipped-Flopped this track he didn't just do it because he owned more property on that side like the owners or Darlington.  He did it to improve the facility.  And boy did he.  It amazes me to see the new AMS ever time we pull up in front of it.  He used Charlotte Motor Speedway as his blueprint then he improved on it. 


The Champions Grandstand are excellent from almost the bottom row all the way to the top.  The only thing that blocked my view of the entire race track in Row 10 was the wide screen TV and the big ass chrome flag stand.  The infield like I said is almost sunk down so there are no garages or motor homes blocking your view.   

Only problem I noticed was the higher up in this grandstand you go the louder it is.  The top row has a wall like structure built around it which keeps rain and wind off you (nice at Atlanta) but holds in the noise.  It was louder up on the top row than in chicken bone alley!  Above row 43 or so they have TV's that you can see in the rafters (must be because you are so high up you can hardly tell who is who!)  Also, above row 43 is covered but that means there will be poles in the way of some seats. The front stretch grandstands is in the sun until sunset.


This grandstand is absolutely the best grandstand ever built in a turn.  I normally would rather sit in chicken bone alley on the frontstretch than on the top row of a grandstand in a turn but not at Atlanta.  When Bruton built this grandstand he didn't do it to simply cram more fans into the track not caring whether they could see or not. He didn't build it at the angle most tracks build their new grandstands (the higher you sit at most of the new grandstands the less of the track right in front of you is visible). From the bottom row all the way up you can see the entire track.  The only thing you lose when sitting down low was the bottom of the race cars (from the tires down).  This is due to the SAFER barriers.  When this grandstand was built they were no SAFER barriers.  I feel sure that would have been taken into consideration by Bruton if they had already been used in nascar.  


The upper sections have the individual seats but the lower sections have the bench seats.  Caution: The front stretch grandstands is in the sun until sunset.


The Champion Grandstand and the East Turn Grandstands had a load of concessions stands located all along them.  They had the usual race track food along with some other interesting stuff.  The Wall of Corn was just popcorn loaded into this see thru vat but it was cool to see.  They also had a guy during the fall race selling "redneck suckers".  A fresh ear of corn dipped into melted butter. 
Beer Cut-Off Times – Beer sales will conclude with 50 laps left in each race.  For your convenience, please be sure to make your purchases before this time.


The fans in the high dollar seats in the Champion and East Turn Grandstand had to walk down the 70 or so rows to get to the bathrooms.  However, every section had a men's and women's room with around 16 stalls but only a few sinks.  At the main entrance to the Champions Grandstand (section 246-247) there were bathrooms on either side with 32 stalls BUT only around 6 sinks.  Don't they realize that 6 sinks backs up a women's room almost as bad as 6 stalls? 

Also, in the Champion Grandstand they kept the men's rooms from when it was the back stretch and built new ones.  You almost miss the old ones.  They are as soon as you come down the grandstand steps before you walk onto the concourse.

Staff was extremely helpful and well informed.  If they didn't have the answer they sent me to some one who did.


Tons of Shuttle Busses....There are 12 trams stops around Perimeter road.  There is a 13th one at the corner of Mid State Campground and the free parking. THEY LINE THEM UP OUTSIDE OF THE MAIN ENTRANCE AND FILL THEM UP...THEY STOP AT EVERY GATE....Second only to Bristol!
