NASCAR Cup Atlanta II

NASCAR 2023 Atlanta II schedule, entry list, and how to watch

NASCAR makes its first repeat visit of the 2023 season, heading to Atlanta Motor Speedway for Round 19 of 36.

Last weekend on the streets of Chicago, a wet and wild race ended with a historic victory. Shane van Gisbergen became the first driver in over 60 years to win on debut, driving the part-time Project91 entry.

He also became the first New Zealander to ever win a NASCAR race. The victory made it back-to-back Cup wins for Trackhouse Racing, who won the week prior at Nashville with Ross Chastain

Justin Haley finished second, just missing out on an upset win that would have catapulted him into the playoffs.

Despite a rough day and a final result outside the top-30, Martin Truex Jr. remains in control of regular season championship. William Byron trails him by 9pts and Chastain by 18pts. 

NASCAR now returns to Atlanta where Joey Logano was victorious earlier this year, completing a last-lap lap pass on fellow Ford driver Brad Keselowski.

Hendrick Motorsports swept both races last year with William Byron and Chase Elliott.

Ahead of the race, NASCAR changed the pit road speed limit for the sections that go along the apron through Turns 3 and 4. They've also added an additional minute to the DVP (damaged-vehicle policy) clock.
