Road Atlanta, a 2.54-mile road course located near Braselton, Georgia, first opened in 1970 and quickly attracted top-level racing series including Can-Am, Trans-Am, IMSA Camel GT, and Formula 5000. After a period of unstable management that culminated in bankruptcy in 1993, the track underwent major refurbishments in the late 1990s and resumed hosting major racing events in 1998 with the first edition of the Petit Le Mans endurance race. NASCAR purchased the track in 2012 as part of its acquisition of the Panoz Motorsports Group.
