Pit Window:

The estimated pit window for this race is 35-40 laps for all classes. These are just approximations and does not account for fuel mileage, weather or caution flag laps.

Track Characteristics:

Considered a road course in the classic sense, Road Atlanta is full of places to pass, elevation changes, and high speed corners. The 12-turn natural road course is an excellent track for spectators, especially through the esses where there’s sure to be plenty of door-to-door action and driver frustration. Overall, Road Atlanta is not typically hard on tires so expect a good, close race.
