NASCAR Sprint Cup Trophy Stops in Macon

The trophy was in town as part of a promotion for Atlanta Motor Speedway’s upcoming  NASCAR Sprint Cup race weekend.

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship trophy was in Macon Thursday.

The trophy was at Food Depot on Northside Drive as part of a promotion for Atlanta Motor Speedway’s upcoming race weekend. NASCAR returns to AMS the last weekend of February when the Camping World Truck Series, XFINITY Series and Sprint Cup Series all race at the 1/2-mile tri-oval.

AMS is going back to its Georgia roots this year with pre-race performances from a few Peach State celebrities, including Robin Meade and Mark Willis. They’ll also have some Georgia-grown foods items at the concession stands.

“We’re going to really have an emphasis on our Georgia-based food items using peanuts and pecans,” says Dustin Bixby, director of marketing and promotion for AMS. “Speaking of peanuts, we’ve got a great Georgia Peanut Butter and Jelly milkshake that will be sold at the concession stand.”

No grandstand ticket is over $99 this year, plus there’s a “perfect weather guarantee.” If it rains or fails to reach 50 degrees (like last year), you can get a credit for next year’s race weekend.
