HAMPTON – Atlanta Motor Speedway is serving as one of the largest staging points for more than 200 Georgia Power service vehicles during a current winter storm event expected to have a significant impact on the Atlanta area and the surrounding region.

During the past 24 hours, the Speedway’s Champions Grandstand parking lot has been utilized as a gathering point for emergency crews and their vehicles, according to a press statement from AMS officials. Service vehicles have arrived at AMS from Florida, North Carolina and other states throughout the Southeast.

"With the forecasted winter weather approaching, we are very pleased that we are able to serve as a staging point for emergency crews that will assist Georgians during the inclement weather period in our area," Atlanta Motor Speedway President and GM Ed Clark said.
