AdvoCare 500 Atlanta History

The AdvoCare 500 was initially held in the fall and was known as the Dixie 300. The event has always been toward the end of the NASCAR season and was originally held in October or November before moving to Labor Day Weekend and becoming one of the final races held prior to the Chase for the Sprint Cup. In addition to being known as the Dixie 300, the AdvoCare 500 has also been named the Atlanta Journal 500, the Hardee's 500, the Hooters 500, the NAPA 500, the Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500, the Pep Boys Auto 500, and the Emory Healthcare 500. Many of the biggest names in racing have won the event including Richard Petty, Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt, Tony Stewart, and more.


AdvoCare 500 Atlanta NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

Since its first race back in 1960 the AdvoCare 500 has been one of the most popular events of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and its position at the end of the season only makes it even more appealing. Taking place at Atlanta Motor Speedway each year, a warm August evening in Georgia begins to seethe with horsepower and adrenaline as the best drivers in NASCAR show up in the city to compete for one of the most coveted prizes of the circuit, the AdvoCare 500. Sure, fame and money are on hand for the winners of the race, but most drivers are doing it for their team and compete out of pride. The winner of the Sprint Cup Series is determined by total finishing positions as well as total laps led during races, so each race, and indeed each lap, is of utmost importance to the proud racers looking to finish the season at the top of their sport. Each and every event in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series is full of fierce competition, roaring engines, and neck breaking speed.


The Experience

Although there are plenty of hard core NASCAR fans who perfectly content watching a major race at home on their televisions while relaxing on their couch, there is truly nothing that quite compares to actually being in the stands for a major NASCAR race like the AdvoCare 500. From the tailgating and barbecuing leading up to the race with the flags of the spectators' favorite teams and drivers proudly flying outside of the race track to the moment you enter the speedway you know that there is a whole new level of excitement when you actually watch a race in person. The smell of the gasoline, the roars of the engines, and the screeching tires as they hit a turn all make for an experience that borderlines on sensory overload and makes NASCAR one of the most popular sports in the United States. Be sure to be there in Hampton, Georgia for the AdvoCare 500 to be part of an event you will never forget.


Trivia

The AdvoCare 500 was the final race of the NASCAR season from 1987 through 2001 and often saw the coronation of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion. In 2009 there was a realignment and the race was moved to Labor Day Weekend. Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, and Bobby Labonte have been victorious at the AdvoCare 500 the most times with four championships apiece while Neil Bonnett, Bill Elliott, and Jeff Gordon have each won the race three times.
