Atlanta Motor Speedway, July 4th Drags & Fireworks Display...

Any of you Atlanta, GA owners interested in meeting for this local event? They have the weekly Friday Night Drags throughout the summer. For July 4th, it's held on the 4th which is Thursday night. You can pay $20 and enter through the race car hauler's tunnel (14'-6") and park right in the middle of the event with slides out, generators running and ribs on the grill. The fireworks show is huge and one of the biggest in this area. The fireworks show is after the drag races. It's pretty much a day event but they have full hookups just outside the track if you wanted to stay the night or weekend. It would be a great opportunity for the "Thor Atlanta" bunch to gather and meet new friends...tell a few lies...plan more local events. Any others traveling through Atlanta are welcome as well. No reservations required other than paying at the gate once you get through the tunnel. If you Google the Speedway, the tunnel is on the far West side of the track...enter here and follow the paved road across the infield area to the parking on the East end between turns 3 and 4. I'll post a map if anyone is interested.

We went last year, go to the Friday Night Drags a few times a year and do a 10 day dry camp for the AMS NASCAR race each Spring. We're going this year also. Most likely will do the rally in St. Augustine...wife told her company she was retiring and they asked her to stay for 6 or so more months. Will have to see what unfolds but I'm closer to pushing the button "yes" on St. Augustine. Mr Sunshine moved it closer north in Florida so it should be good for us.

Sounds like a good combination, drag racing and fireworks. I'd love to go to that, but my wife refuses to get within 75 miles of Atlanta after a trip through there about 3 years ago, she can't stand any kind of city traffic.

Wouldn't you be coming in South of the city? Or is that just to close? I'm considering going down, got to find out if they let pets in the infield.

AMS is the most liberal venue you'll ever go to...other than guns...just don't let them see them. Dogs are fine as long as you do the usual. It's a Gooberama Event for sure but lots of fun.
