Located on 887 acres in Hampton, Ga., just 25 miles south of Atlanta, Atlanta Motor
Speedway is one of the country's top sports, corporate, family and entertainment facilities.
Since holding its first race in 1960, Atlanta Motor Speedway has become a premiere
facility for multiple forms of racing in addition to a wide range of other events which have included concerts,
family gatherings, business conventions and the Georgia State Fair.
The track was purchased in 1990 by Bruton Smith, and since then, AMS has been the
benefactor of tremendous facility improvements, starting with the addition of the 25,000-seat Elliott
In 1994, Tara Place, the nine-story building that houses 46 luxury condominiums, Tara
Ballroom, the speedway office complex and more luxury suites opened, as did the adjacent Tara Clubhouse and its
accompanying swimming pool and tennis courts.
A year later, the Earnhardt Grandstand opened, and in 1997, the great
transformation was completed. The Champions Grandstand was added, and the total of luxury suites was
increased to 137. When the Champions Grandstand was built, the start/finish line was moved from the west to the
east side of the track, and two doglegs were added to the frontstretch to form a 1.54-mile quad-oval, which
replaced the original oval. New media facilities, garages and countless fan support buildings were added to
what has become a modern motorsports palace.
In October, 2006 Atlanta Motor Speedway added another Grandstand, the Winners
Grandstand, offering fans a great view of the frontstretch and pit road. A Trackside Terrace Luxury RV Camping
area replaced the aged Weaver Grandstands as well.
Sitting atop the Winners Grandstand is a public suite called Club One. Limited to just
1,000 occupants, the exclusive club offers a climate controlled view of the entire track as well as a rooftop
sight and sound observation deck.
