With Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm nearing the Florida coast and expected to move up the East Coast over the next two days, Atlanta Motor Speedway has opened its “Family Campgrounds” to evacuees for free.

Evacuees also will have access to the Hampton, Georgia, track’s camper bathhouse facility for hot showers and restrooms.

From an Atlanta Motor Speedway release:

Those interested in RV or tent camping at Atlanta Motor Speedway should enter the facility at Entrance “A” off Hwy 19/41 at Speedway Boulevard and take the first left at entrance N. The Family Campgrounds will be on the left. From I-75 and GA Highway 20, campers should see signs to AMS and follow Lower Woolsey Road to Speedway Boulevard. Turn right on Speedway Boulevard and follow to entrance N.

For on-site assistance or directions, visit the ticket office/gift store building. Atlanta Motor Speedway is located approximately 25 miles south of Atlanta on Hwy 19/41 and approximately eight miles west of I-75 off of GA Highway 20.
