ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY DRAGS

4000 people at AMS for untimed 1/8 mile drags? It's all over the local radio and TV stations too. Wow. This brand new sport of drag racing is pretty popular. That's gotta make the folks at Atlanta Dragway wonder what they're doing wrong. After all, they run on Friday nights too. Except for the occaisional Ronnie Davis update in the Atlanta paper, the Commerce track is virtually ignored buy local media.
On the downside, local TV also reported a half dozen car thefts at AMS during the races. Apparently opportunistic thieves were making off with cars in the show area while everyone was watching the drags. Haven't seen that happen at Commerce. - Dave Cox
