What channel is NASCAR on today? TV, schedule, start time for the Atlanta race


For the second year in a row, the Quaker State 400 will be held at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The race had been a long-time track staple, but was moved to Kentucky Speedway and held there from 2011 to 2020.

Only three active drivers have won the Quaker State 400 in Atlanta: Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Kurt Busch. Kurt Busch has won the last three Quaker State 400s in Atlanta (2009, 2010, 2021). Harvick took his win in 2001 and Kyle Busch won there in 2008.


This track was dominated by the three older drivers. Including the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, Kurt Busch has won four races at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Harvick has three wins and Kyle Busch has two.

William Byron won the last race in Atlanta, the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on March 20.
