Aspire and Atlanta Motor Speedway Partner Ahead of Quaker State 400
June 1, 2022
ATLANTA, GA – The Aspire Group (Aspire) and Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) have agreed to a ticket sales and service partnership for the upcoming Quaker State 400. Aspire first partnered with AMS in 2011, and has since worked with over a dozen motorsport properties across the country.
A.J. Smith, Aspire’s Senior Vice President of Client Development remarked, “We’re thrilled to partner once again with Atlanta Motor Speedway and support the Quaker State 400 from our industry-leading National Sales Center. Our team will be focused on cultivating relationships with group and business leaders across the state and helping to deliver them the ultimate race day experience at the track.”
“We’re excited to work with an Atlanta-based company that has proven itself to be a great partner for events like the Quaker State 400 Presented by Walmart,” said AMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Brandon Hutchison. “Aspire will help us bring the thrills and fun of NASCAR weekend in Atlanta to more people and we can’t wait to get started.”
Aspire’s team of dedicated sales consultants will operate out of the Atlanta-based National Sales Center (NSC) and focus on maximizing group ticket revenue while building fan relationships. Remote partnerships through Aspire’s NSC are agile in their approach, enabling the sales team to immediately begin work on filling the stands for the July 10th race. The NSC has generated more than $15M in revenue across 60+ collegiate and professional sports properties all-time, most recently partnering with several MLB and United Soccer League (USL) clubs.
