Air show debuts this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway

An air show debuts this weekend at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, with military and civilian pilots performing for crowds.

Organizers say the air show Oct. 14-15 is the first aerial acrobatic show to be hosted at a speedway. Pilots will fly out of Henry County Airport next to the speedway.

One key benefit of the setup: While air shows typically held at airfields or beaches often have temporary set-ups for concessions, portable toilets and seating, those attending this weekend’s event will watch the air show from the Atlanta Motor Speedway grandstands, with access to the facility’s concessions and restrooms.

Tickets range from $19.50 to $139 for adults, with different prices for grandstand seating, preferred seating and flight line skybox seating. Grandstand seating is discounted for children 6-12 and free for children 5 and younger. More details here.
