Atlanta Motor Speedway to host first NASCAR open team test ‘15


An open team test for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams Feb. 26 will kick off four consecutive days of on-track NASCAR action at Atlanta Motor Speedway leading into the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend.

The open team test, the first of 13 on NASCAR’s 2015 testing schedule, will take place from 1-5:30 p.m., with a 30-minute break from 3-3:30 p.m. and will be open to the public. General admission will be free for those who have purchased a ticket to the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday, March 1 and $10 for anyone without a ticket to Sunday’s race. Tickets to Sunday’s race must be presented for free admission to the test session.

The open team test will be open to all teams entered to race in Sunday’s NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series race. NASCAR eliminated private team testing at the end of the 2014 season in an announcement earlier this year.

Following Thursday’s open team test, Sprint Cup Series qualifying will speed onto the AMS oval on Friday, before a rare Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series racing doubleheader on Saturday. The Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 Sprint Cup Series race will headline the weekend Sunday, March 1, to wrap up Atlanta’s 2015 NASCAR schedule.
