Several Southeastern States Receive Regional Tourism Recognition

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – Atlanta Motor Speedway has been named the Escape to the Southeast Travel Attraction of the Year for 2021. In addition to hosting motorsport races and the Georgia State Fair, Atlanta Motor Speedway adapted to the Covid-19 pandemic to present events that guests could enjoy from the safety of their cars. Over the last year, Atlanta Motor Speedway introduced Jurassic Quest, an interactive drive-in exhibit, drive-in concerts, and the most attended Georgia State Fair in its ten years at the venue.

The recognition was one of sixteen Shining Example Awards presented last week during Southeast Tourism Society’s annual Connections conference in Spartanburg, S.C. [Learn More]
