The Stihl 300 is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. EST on Saturday. Tim Bender, who does not have a NASCAR Busch Series ride, won the Bud Pole Award a year ago in the last NASCAR Busch Series race on Atlanta's previous layout, with a lap in 30.468 seconds, a track record 179.835 mph. Mark Martin, whose No. 60 Winn-Dixie Ford is entered, is the defending champion of the race.

Geoff Bodine set the track record for the present layout with a lap of 28.074 seconds, an average speed of 197.478 mph, in a Ford, last November. Dale Jarrett won the last PRIMESTAR 500 on the 1.522-mile layout at Atlanta.
