In the name of charity, car racing aficionados are being invited to drive their own vehicles as fast as they want at the Atlanta Motor Speedway’s newly paved and reconfigured track. The January 28 event is hosted by Speedway Children’s Charities Atlanta to help local children in need. Participants will be allowed to take three laps around the Speedway’s revamped 1.54-mile oval featuring higher 28-degree banks for a $60 donation to the cause. If you want to pony up $150, a “solo, continuous five-lap experience on the track” is also available. atlantamotorspeedway.com
