Atlanta Confirms 2016 NASCAR Dates
Atlanta Motor Speedway has confirmed that NASCAR will return to the 1.5-mile speedway on Feb. 26-28, 2016.
Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend will feature NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying on Feb. 26, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and NASCAR XFINITY Series racing on Feb. 27 and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on Feb. 28.
The majority of grandstand seat prices for Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 have been reduced, and no ticket to the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 is priced at more than $99, with seats starting as low as $39. The new ticket prices represent an overall average reduction of 15 percent from previous levels.
Along with reduced ticket prices, Atlanta Motor Speedway has introduced a “Perfect Race Weather Guarantee." The new policy offers fans options in the event that inclement weather prevents them from attending the race. If the daytime high temperature in Hampton, Ga., on Saturday or Sunday of race weekend fails to reach at least 50 degrees as observed by the National Weather Service, or if weather issues postpone the day’s activities to a different day and fans are unable to attend on the rescheduled date, fans who do not enter the admission gates on the day the event is held will receive an account credit for the full price of their tickets.
Credits can be applied to any future AMS event or events in 2016 or the 2017 NASCAR Weekend.
Also new in 2016, Atlanta Motor Speedway is rolling out the ultra-affordable "Good," "Better" and "Best" ticket packages that offer weekend deals.
– The "Good" ticket package, priced at $79, includes upper Petty Grandstand seating for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, plus general admission seating to Friday’s Sprint Cup Series qualifying day and Saturday’s doubleheader, a savings of $40 off the regular prices.

– The "Best" package, which offers the best value of all three deals, is priced at $179 and boasts an ultimate NASCAR weekend combination, including a seat in the Upper Champions Grandstand or the Upper Winners Grandstand chairback seats for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, general admission seating to Friday’s Sprint Cup Series qualifying day and Saturday’s doubleheader, a weekend FanVision scanner rental, a weekend pre-race pit pass, and $25 off a purchase of $50 or more in the AMS souvenir shop.
