Atlanta Motor Speedway provides tram service between the campgrounds and the entrance gates before and after events and will depart regularly from the designated tram stops. Tram passengers under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Trams are provided as a courtesy service to speedway guests.

You will find ATM machines at Gates 13 and 15 (will call).

Planning ahead will make your entrance to the speedway much simpler for both our visitors and security officers alike. * Handicapped Parking Enforcement – Handicapped parking areas will be strictly enforced for the Emory Healthcare 500 race weekend and misuse could result in being fined and/or towed. These areas are reserved for those fans with a handicap, not for those who plan to use a friend or relative’s handicap permit to gain access to these areas. The person who is the owner of the handicapped parking sticker is required to be in the vehicle. * Ticket Resale – No tickets may be resold on Speedway property. This will be strictly enforced. Fans can also utilize TicketExchange, Ticketmaster’s new online service that enables safe and secure fan-to-fan ticket transactions.

If you simply can’t miss a message from your boss — even when you’re in tropical paradise and really shouldn’t be working — and you prearranged to use an email subject line “code word” (such as “IMPORTANT”) so the boss can reach you if absolutely necessary, you can create custom Outlook out-of-office message rules to make sure crucial messages get sent to you via a personal mail account, for example.
I n the city of Mozart and Richard Strauss the idea of billing a musical – no matter how sophisticated and well-thought of – was a controversial one. But if anyone could convince the festival goers of its musical validity it was going to be Bartoli, whose repertoire normally focuses on Handel, Mozart and Rossini. The darling of the festival, she was the driving force behind the production and a move to widen her repertoire. “I’ve always wanted to sing Maria,” she said, “I think it is a truly great work; one of the greatest of the 20th century.” She also saw it as a way of connecting with a new audience, which can be a challenge at a festival which attracts a fierce loyalty – some 80 per cent of festival goers have visited at least six times, and an extraordinary 47 per cent have been at least 20 times before.

“After living in Australia for a spell and seeing these old things kicking about, I always liked the looks and quirky features like the curved rear quarters glass and kick vents in the footwell. The fact that they didn’t seem to die was also a benefit and I tend to be rough on cars. My favourite book is about a couple of guys who drove one round the world in the 50s/60s called ‘Who needs a road?’ Anyhow, this one came up from a mate who owned it for the last 20 years so I bought it.”
Mark (above) normally builds a new race engine every winter. And when we say, “builds an engine,” we don’t mean he goes shopping for parts online. He starts with a big billet of solid aluminum and designs an entirely new engine. Apart from the seals and bearings, he makes everything—right down to the cranks, conrods and pistons. (It’s taken him a few years, but with the help of other two-stroke tuners, Mark’s current Yamaha makes world-class power.)
Dewan Farooque Chairman Muhammad Yousuf Farooqui says BMW ChargeNow will make day-to-day electrified motoring possible, at least near its installations. “I’m hopeful that the BMW ChargeNow station will make daily motoring possible purely in electric mode for plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles, which offer even greater mobility than the conventional hybrid vehicles.”
The owner of a 2017 Ram Laramie, who calls himself Miner, reached out to members of a Ram forum because of a persistent problem with his headlights. “I got a 17 Laramie 1500. I just got my second set of headlights installed and still get frost build up along bottom of lens right along the amber light. The service manager sent me a bulletin saying that it’s normal and do not replace. Anyone have any input? I’m pretty crispy knowing I paid so much money on a truck and frosty or foggy headlights is acceptable!?” Miner lives in Canada where cold weather is expected in the winter.
Since graduating from the Indiana University School of Journalism in May 2012, the Michigan native has spent time at The Arizona Republic in Phoenix, The State Journal in Frankfort, Kentucky, and The Herald-Times in Bloomington. Even when she hasn’t been covering politics, she always had an interest in it. Election season can be crazy, but she loves reporting on campaigns and on Election Day (although it may have something to do with the fact that there’s always pizza in the newsroom).
