Driver’s Offer Advice about Atlanta Motor Speedway

Listen to Noah Gragson – Spinning out in Lap 1 is “no Bueno.”

Last year’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series winner, Christopher Bell has very constructive advice. You have to have a soft right foot. This place is extremely hard on tires . . . you have to take care of it.

Clint Bowyer reports that you have to have a 'good balance' race car.

While Alex Bowman believes you have to be really patient and understand tire management.
