 HAMPTON, Ga. (AP) - This isn't the way Atlanta Motor Speedway wanted to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
The high-banked oval has traditionally hosted two NASCAR Sprint Cup races each year, but that's changing in 2011. Track owner Speedway Motorsports is shifting the spring date to another of its tracks, Kentucky Motor Speedway.
Drivers such as Carl Edwards and Kasey Kahne aren't happy about losing one of the Atlanta races. They say it's one of their favorite tracks because of its high speeds and multiple grooves for passing.
But poor attendance at the spring race led to the move. Kyle Busch says it's only fair to put races at tracks where they can draw the best crowds.
