Week 4 in Nascar Schedule: Atlanta Motor Speedway

Atlanta Motor Speedway (ams)

Can the red-hot number 48 Lowes Chevrolet team led by Jimmie Johnson make it three wins in a row?

NASCAR moves into dixieland this week at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton, Ga., which is 30 miles  south of Atlanta. The seating capacity is 113,000 on a quad-oval track. The Kobalt Tools 500 will be on March 7 on Fox TV at 1 p.m. This is the 50th anniversary of the speedway and Atlanta has hosted more 500-mile races (93) than any other NASCAR facility.

Renovations at the facility turned th speedway into NASCAR’s fastest 1.5 mile track. The asphalt is banked in the turns.

Since Jimmie Johnson’s sweep in 2007, two Dodges, a Ford, and a Toyota have won at Atlanta. Fireball Roberts won the first NASCAR event in Atlanta, the 1960 Dixie 200.

Recapping the 2009 race, Kurt Busch dominated, leading 234 of the 330 laps in his Miller Lite Dodge, but needed to get past Carl Edwards with two laps to go to win the race. Jeff Gordon, who led 47 laps, also slipped past Edwards for second. Mark Martin, the pole-sitter finished 31st.
