Atlanta Motor Speedway

Description
In the era of restrictor-plate racing, the 1.54-mile Atlanta Motor Speedway vies with fellow Speedway Motorsports facility Texas Motor Speedway for the title of “fastest track in NASCAR.” Qualifying lap averages generally are in the range of 193 mph (and an all-time lap record of 197+ mph), so the 24-degree banked quad-oval has earned its nickname, “Real Racing, Real Fast.” In addition to NASCAR’s top series, Legends Cars and their Bandolero and Thunder Roadster brethren race year-around on Atlanta’s quarter-mile paved oval that uses parts of the pit lane and front stretch, connected by 180-degree turns on either end.

With 125,000+ seats, Atlanta Motor Speedway, located about 20 miles south of downtown Atlanta in Hampton, GA, has come a very long way from the first race, held in 1960 and won by NASCAR legend Fireball Roberts, who also took the pole at 133 mph. Spectators from that day, who watched from one small grandstand or on blankets spread out on an adjacent dirt bank, wouldn’t begin to recognize the facility today, even down to the name. Dubbed Atlanta International Raceway when it opened, the track struggled financially through the ’60s and ’70s before finding a degree of stability in the ’80s. (Future Georgia governor and President of the United States Jimmy Carter briefly worked as a ticket-seller on race weekends in the ’60s.)

Real change came following Bruton Smith’s purchase of the facility in 1990, with the culmination of the transformation of Atlanta International Speedway occurring in 1997 following an extensive reconfiguration that switched front and back straightaways and added a double-dogleg in the new front straightaway. In the seven intervening years, new grandstands sprouted almost every year, along with a nine-story tower, Tara Place, that houses the track offices and a number of luxury condominiums. Subsequently the Winners Grandstand was erected overlooking the double-dogleg frontstretch and pits, along with the new private-membership Club One, which features climate-controlled views of the entire track.

Certainly, however my personal skins works on Eagle creek speedway (3PA), Palm Spring ...

With new UI there are some issue with custom skins and the way they need to be named, Not sure what happened but it is picky. So we narrowed it down to a custom skin issue in new UI for you.

With the default mods (SC2018 and SC2018x) by default it works. However, to get the skins to work I had to upgrade to v1122.

Try doing it with default content only.
Let me know your findings. So I can look into it further.

We run it all the time with no issues like that? What mod? Custom skins? New UI?

Hi, I have a problem with the track. I have created a dedicated server. And when a driver connects to the server. No one can enter afterwards. So only one driver is possible on the server with this track. I have no problem with other tracks. Do you have an idea ? Thank you.
