For my first NASCAR race! Now, im not into cup racing like my buddy is, but I am looking forward to the experiance. I am packing 25 sticks for me and my buddy, luckly he is a BOTL also. 3 rounds of golf, the truck race, and the cup race...... should be a great time with some awesome sticks! Anyone else NASCAR fans?

    I am a huge fan. Atlanta is a great track to see a race at. Try to get down by the fence one time as they go by and you will appreciate what this sport is about.

    I'm a huge Nascar fan! I grew up just down the road from Bristol and my family has season tickets to Bristol. Went to my first non Bristol race this year. Atlanta is a great track, one of my favs to watch. Hope you guys have an awesome time!

    Man the track is like 15 mins from my house. If you like BBQ check out southern pit. Go south on 1941 from the track. It is hid down on the right. I got a busy weekend and there is nowhere to meet for a smoke otherwise it would be cool to meet up.

    Welcome to atl buddy, hope u enjoy your trip. Sounds like you have a great weekend planned. Word of advice, don't say "hot lanta" while you're here. Might piss of an ATL native, LOL. You should check out Tobacco World while you're here. Biggest humi in GA.

    Tobacco world is located off of 75 north. The hwy 5 exit, you will see a big billboard right before the exit. Take exit, turn right at the light will be sandy plains road, tw is in the first shopping center ( first right when u turn on to sandy plains)

    Just saw this so maybe Im a little late, but you should check out this steak house called "chops" Very cool. There is a private club/ lounge in the basement that someone invited me to once. You take an elevator downstairs and they lead you through the kitchen to a door that looks like an old speak easy door where you have to knock or use a thumb print pad. When you get in, there is a private bar, seating, live jazz and all cigar friendly. It was like stepping back in time. Not sure if you can get a day pass or how it works for membership, but it was one of the coolest spots I have smoked in. On a side note, the steaks were great.
