HAMPTON, Ga. – The weather for the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 should be just like the Atlanta Motor Speedway’s new track – smooth.
The fifth race of the 2022 season takes place in Hampton, Georgia, at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
Temperatures will reach the upper 60s and conditions will remain dry throughout the race.
Known for its rough surface and chaotic cracks, the Atlanta Motor Speedway was repaved and redesigned for the 2022 season. The revamp took construction crews 163 days.
"Never before has NASCAR raced on an intermediate track like ours with 28 degrees of banking, much less with super speedway cars. Both will happen for the first time in Atlanta this year," said AMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Brandon Hutchison.
