#TBT – Atlanta Motor Speedway

Throwback Thursday is the segment that takes you down Memory Lane for the races each week. This week, we’re heading to the state of Georgia for the spring race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.


This happened when Kevin Harvick was a rookie. Dale Earnhardt had recently died on the last lap of the Daytona 500 and Harvick took over his ride. Not only was it Harvick’s third start in the Cup Series, it was his first win in Cup.



We’ve got a Radioactive! This features drivers who now no longer race, such as Greg Biffle, Dale Earnhardt Jr and Jeff Gordon, and since then, drivers like Kurt Busch and Austin Dillon have won the Daytona 500 for their first time. Jimmie Johnson also won his first race of the season at that race.
