On Wednesday, Atlanta Motor Speedway (GA) announced dates for the 2015 Thursday Thunder Series, which takes place on the track’s quarter-mile front stretch oval.
From Atlanta Motor Speedway PR: Thursday Thunder Legends and Bandolero racing will take place every Thursday for eight weeks, from June 4 to July 23 in its 18th season at AMS. The eight-race series on the quarter-mile “Thunder Ring” will offer the future stars of racing the chance to compete for a championship trophy on one of the most challenging short tracks around. For many drivers, Thursday Thunder serves as the final step before moving on to professional-level racing in what’s proven to be a training ground for future NASCAR stars.
Last year, Albany’s Skip Nichols took the Thursday Thunder Masters Division crown, topping off an impressive resume as the winningest driver in Thursday Thunder history before he announced his retirement. Other 2014 Thursday Thunder winners include Woodrow Mullis of Hoboken in the Young Lions Division, R.S. Senter in the Semi-Pro Division, Stockbridge’s Jensen Jorgensen in the Outlaws Division and Chandler Smith of Talking Rock in the Bandits Division.
Infield admission is available for spectators wishing to watch Thursday Thunder, and passes may be purchased at the Security Command building near the speedway’s main entrance. Infield passes are $12 for adults, $5 for ages 6 through 11, and children ages 5 and younger are admitted free. Grandstand tickets for the affordable, family-friendly racing series cost just $6 for adults, $2 for children ages 6 through 11 and is free for children ages 5 and younger.
