REMAINDER OF THURSDAY THUNDER RACES CANCELLED AT ATLANTA MOTOR SPEEDWAY

HAMPTON, GA (July 19, 2005) -- Due to the ongoing reconstruction requirements, Atlanta Motor Speedway track officials have cancelled the remainder of the Thursday Thunder racing series events through August 11.

The 10-week racing series, comprised of Legends, Bandolero and Thunder Roadster cars, completed four of the scheduled ten race weeks prior to the storm.

"Due to the construction projects required to prepare for the upcoming Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500 race weekend held on October 28-30, we will be unable to complete the remainder of the 2005 Thursday Thunder events as scheduled," said events director, Brandon Hutchison. "It is our hope that we will be able to make up at least some of the remaining events at a later date and crown season champions at the end of the series. We will know more about this possibility as the rebuilding process moves along.

"We appreciate all the support our Thursday Thunder fans and sponsors have shown and we are working diligently to get the speedway ready to race again soon," said Hutchison.

Great seats are still available for the Bass Pro Shops MBNA 500 race weekend. Tickets can be obtained by calling (770) 946-4211 or online at www.atlantamotorspeedway.com.
