RACE PREVIEW

QUIK TRIP 500

ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY

February 28th, 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. For the second year 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 15 races run, HMS and JGR each have five wins. Note too that each team has three wins in the last six years. No question these two teams dominate this track. 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.
