Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information Story: May 12, 2015

NASCAR Week: It's an exciting month for NASCAR fans, as Charlotte Motor Speedway prepares for the 10 Days of Thunder. This weekend is the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race (May 16th), followed by the Coca-Cola 600 on May 24. In preparation for the races, Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken is spending the week looking at some race fan hotspots in both North Georgia and in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Day two brings us to -- where else? -- Atlanta Motor Speedway, for a preview of the O'Reilly Auto Parts Friday Night Drags. Described as a "heads up, street-style drag racing series" -- the event is held at the Speedway's eighth-mile pit toad. And get this -- racing is open to anything with a car and a valid driver's license! meanwhile, someone who knows a thing or two about racing is NASCAR Daytona 500 winner Joey Logano. Paul caught up with him at the Fox Sports 1 Studios in Charlotte, and the two chatted about Logano's busy career and his very early television appearance on Good Day!
