Track History

The Atlanta Motor Speedway is the site of Richard Petty’s final race and Jeff Gordon’s first race – both events occurring during the same event in 1992. Through the years, some of NASCAR’s biggest names have launched their careers on Atlanta Motor Speedway’s track, which was constructed between 1959 and 1960 and reconfigured in 1997. Joey Logano, David Ragan and brothers, Austin and Ty Dillon, can all trace their roots back to Atlanta Motor Speedway. During its long history, this racetrack has even seen the familial torch passed from NASCAR Hall of Famer and Georgia Native, Bill Elliott, to his son, Chase, who now finds himself behind the wheel of the No. 24 made famous by Jeff Gordon.
