AMS releases start times for Xfinity and truck series races

By AccessWDUN Staff

HAMPTON – The start times for each race in Atlanta Motor Speedway’s NASCAR doubleheader on February 23 are set.
NASCAR announced Thursday the Rinnai 250 XFINITY Series race will begin at 2 p.m. That same day, the 200-mile Gander Outdoors Truck Series race on the 1.54-mile oval is slated to begin at 4:30 p.m.

The Saturday doubleheader is one of the most unique features of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway. It’s the only scheduled doubleheader in NASCAR, and one Saturday ticket gets fans into both races.

For those who can’t make it to the Speedway on race day, the Rinnai 250 will be seen on FS1 and heard on PRN. Atlanta’s Gander Outdoors Truck Series race will be televised on FS1 and heard on the radio via MRN.

The start time for Sunday’s Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 is 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 24, as previously announced.
