RACE PREVIEW

QUIK TRIP 500

ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY

March 1st, 1:00PM ET on FOX TV

1.54 Miles 24 Degrees of Banking

Atlanta is the fastest and probably the #1 favorite track amongst the drivers to drive on. Great sweeping turns and a smooth surface are two of the main reasons. At 1.54 miles it is a tad bigger than the many other “cookie cutter tracks.” But the date for this race has seen many changes over the years, now it is the second race of the year or really the first “real race”. Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing are the two most dominate teams here in the last 10 years. In the 16 races run JGR has five wins and HMS has four. Note though that JGR has three of the last five wins but HMS the other two. No question these two teams dominate here. Who will get the first non restrictor plate win of the year? We’ll find out on Sunday.

Tuesday look for our Top 10 drivers on intermediate tracks for week two. Thursday we rank the top 30 drivers for the QUIK TRIP 500.
