The three NASCAR national series will shift to Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend for the third events this season on a 1.5-mile track.

The first two NASCAR races held on 1.5-mile tracks saw two different winners, with William Byron winning at Homestead-Miami Speedway and Kyle Larson taking the checkered flag at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Atlanta Motor Speedway, one of the fastest tracks on the circuit, hosted two Cup Series races a year from 1960 through 2010. In 2011, NASCAR cut back to one race per year at the Hampton, Ga. track. Atlanta will go back to hosting two Cup races again this season, with the second event scheduled for July 11.

The 60-year-old NASCAR track will host all three national series this weekend with the Truck Series and Xfinity Series races on Saturday preceeding the NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday.
