This is the first activity at the speedway in many years and follows a long history of newsworthy events at the historic race facility.

Winners of those races include, Richard Petty, David Pearson, Bobby Allison, and Bobby Isaac.

The facility also hosted the second annual Atlanta International Pop Festival in 1970 when crowd attendance was reported by some to be over 500,000. Attendees were treated to performances from Jimi Hendrix, The Allman Brothers Band, Proco Harum, Poco, B.B. King and many others. The March event will be organized to recognize all forms of motor sports in the middle Georgia area and welcomes fans, mechanic, car owners, and drivers alike to participate.
