The 2023 NASCAR Quaker State 400 is all set to take place on Sunday (July 9) at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Fans can watch the race on USA Network and NBC Sports at 7 pm ET.
Sunday’s race will be the 19th race of the 2023 NASCAR season in Hampton, Georgia. It will see the Next Gen car in action for the third time since its debut.
The Atlanta Motor Speedway features 24 degrees of banking in the turns and 5 degrees on the straightaway. The track opened in 1960 and hosted its first Cup Series race the same year, with Fireball Roberts taking the win at the inaugural event.
The 37 NASCAR drivers entering this week’s Cup Series race will compete for over 260 laps at the 1.54-mile-long asphalt quad-oval speedway. The Cup Series weekend will start with Saturday’s (July 8) qualifying session and conclude with the Quaker State 400 main race on Sunday.
The Atlanta Motor Speedway will host the season’s 19th event of the Cup Series, 17th for the Xfinity Series, and the 14th for the Truck Series in over three days.
