What To Eat

Camping, grilling out, and tailgating at the Atlanta Motor Speedway is always an awesome experience, but if you don’t feel like cooking, the Atlanta Motor Speedway has great dining options as well. For great grub and a great view of the track, post up at their Bootleggers’ bar. They’ve really gone all out on the menu with this on-site bar and restaurant. Go classic with hamburgers or hot dogs or try something more elevated. Between the Crispy Fried Baby Bakers, the Chicken Quinoa bowl, the Cheesesteak potato, the Oinker sandwich and PLENTY more, there’s always something delicious and coming at you fast at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Make sure Bootleggers is your pit stop with every visit.

Or, Splurge for the VIP Experience at Club One

Club One at Atlanta Motor Speedway is worth the price of admission. Open to the public, it’s the comfortable indoor experience you can find at Atlanta Motor Speedway on race day. The kitchen focuses on scratch cooked foods and partners with renowned chefs like Robert Irvine to make incredible smoked sausage, smoked pork butts, bratwurst and more. Plus – they have a Bloody Mary bar with 15 different items you can experiment with. For a few extra dollars you can have a comfortable race day experience, access to the pit with a pit pass, and access to drivers who come to Club One to engage with fans, sign autographs and take pictures. The best of both worlds are available on race day at Club One.
