After a thrilling year of racing on Atlanta Motor Speedway’s high banks, fans have a chance to make laps around the 1.54 mile oval in their own cars this week.
The opportunity will come during Laps For Charity, hosted by Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) Atlanta this Friday, Sept. 16. Proceeds benefit SCC Atlanta’s mission to help local children in need.
With a donation of $60 per vehicle, participants will get to drive their personal vehicle on Atlanta’s 28-degree banked turns and make three laps around the same track that NASCAR drivers Chase Elliott and William Byron conquered in two thrilling races earlier this year.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion recognizing them for having taken laps around the historic speedway. A limited number of VIP laps offering a solo, continuous five-lap experience on the track, are also available for $150.
Track drives will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16. Drivers will be required to complete a waiver and present it upon arrival. Seatbelts must be worn by all participants. Participants are encouraged to pre-register for the event online at www.speedwaycharities.org/events/atlanta/laps-for-charity/.
Attendees will access the event by entering the infield through the main tunnel located off Speedway Blvd. Participants will then follow signage to check-in.
