HAMPTON, Ga. — The top Bandolero car drivers from across the country will converge on Atlanta Motor Speedway on Sept. 24, when AMS plays host to the 2016 Bandolero Nationals.
The national championship event will take place on the quarter-mile Thunder Ring, a flat racing surface on the AMS frontstretch considered one of the most challenging in the nation.
Atlanta Motor Speedway last hosted the event in the summer of 2014, when Jensen Jorgensen notched his second consecutive Outlaws Division national title and Chandler Smith claimed the Bandits Division crown.
“It’s an honor to once again welcome the most talented Bandolero drivers in the U.S. to our facility as they compete on the national stage for top honors in the country,” said AMS president Ed Clark. “We will host a full day of racing with some of the stiffest short-track competition among the future stars of racing.”
Notable AMS Bandolero and Legends car racing alumni include current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers Chase Elliott, Joey Logano, David Ragan, Austin Dillon and Reed Sorenson, as well as William Byron, who currently leads the 2016 driver standings in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
