Ride Along Racing Tonight at Atlanta Motor Speedway

Tonight is the night to give your wife, girlfriend, husband, boyfriend, son, daughter, other relative, co-worker, boss or anyone the thrill of a lifetime!

It is ‘Ride Along Night’ at Friday Night Drags and Show-N-Shine this Friday, July 24 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Drag racers in the Domestic, Domestic Advanced, Truck, Truck Advanced, Tuner and Sport Compact divisions are welcome to buckle in a passenger while testing and racing down the street strip at AMS. Just bring along an extra helmet, make sure the seat belts or harness are in working order on the passenger side and take them for a ride!!!

Each rider needs to sign-up at the main tunnel entrance, nab a wristband for $20 and then get ready for some drag race coaching. Everyone is invited to join the fun. Children and young adults under age 18, must have a completed waiver form with both parents signatures to drag race or ride along. Waiver forms are available at the Atlanta Motor Speedway website and must be notarized if both parents will not be attending the event.

Don’t forget…every night is ‘Ride Along Night’ with the Show-N-Shine participants. The nightly speedway cruise allows everyone to hop on board with their family and friends and cruise the high banks of Atlanta Motor Speedway. Invite your best buddies to join you for the ride around the speedway at 8:15pm.

Atlanta Motor Speedway continues to draw large crowds for the street style drag racing! Where else can you street race in front of nearly 5,000 fans?

Great racing in fourteen divisions has created an entertaining platform for Atlanta’s southside. We continue to hear compliments on the competitive program that is fast moving, well organized and fun to watch. They love the nostalgic format of dropping the arms and racing to the line. They love the vast array of vehicles competing. They love the fact they can be close to the action and the cars. They love the affordable price.

Thanks to the competitors, we do have a great show! Thanks to our fans, we have an awesome opportunity to showcase these great drivers!

This Friday night there is also a Brewery Collectibles Show taking place in the Media Center (located near the NASCAR Sprint Cup garage in the infield) which will feature thousands of items to decorate your bar, game room or man cave! Be sure to stop by and see some of the collectible items from one of America’s most popular choices in beverage!
