Atlanta Motor Speedway changes smoking policy starting 2014

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A big change is coming to Atlanta Motor Speedway next year. Starting in 2014, all grandstand and suite seating areas at the facility will be smoke-free for events -- including the annual NASCAR Labor Day race weekend.

Smoking will still be permitted in designated areas on the concourse levels in each grandstand and within the outdoor areas, including the infield and fan zone.

Atlanta Motor Speedway has designated smoke-free areas for this weekend's events in Section 113 of the Petty Grandstand, Section 48 of the Elliott Grandstand and the entire Winners Grandstand.  

The announcement was made in order to notify fans of the change as tickets go on sale for the 2014 Labor Day NASCAR weekend.
