Tickets available for Labor Day weekend race

Tickets are already on sale for the Atlanta Motor Speedway’s marquee race weekend.

Speedway officials announced that reserve seats are available for the AdvoCare 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekend. Tickets start at $39.

The race weekend, deemed the biggest Labor Day party in the U.S., is expected to be the only large NASCAR race of the year for the Hampton raceway.

The 1.54-mile speedway is returning to its three nights of NASCAR racing under the lights, beginning on Friday, Aug. 31, with this year’s Camping World Truck Series, according to Speedway Spokeswoman Marcy Scott.

The Nationwide Series is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 1. Scott said the Sprint Cup Series will be a battle for a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup in the AdvoCare 500 on Sunday, Sept. 2.
