Officials from Atlanta Motor Speedway and B. Lilley Productions announced today the track will host the inaugural Atlanta Air Show, October 14-15. It will be the first air show in history to be held at a motor speedway.
“This is a first in the air show industry and in the racing industry,” said Bryan Lilley, President of B. Lilley Productions, which also organizes air shows in New York, Ocean City, Md., Melbourne, Fla. and Fort Lauderdale. “We have finally found a ‘stadium’ large enough to host an air show and look forward to working with the incredible team of professionals at Atlanta Motor Speedway to bring this new event to fruition.”
The performer lineup for the inaugural event will include a variety of military and civilian flight team demonstrations including military jets, aerobatic planes, helicopters, parachute team jumps and more. The lineup will be announced in the coming months and will include four hours of flight demonstrations each day.
“The Atlanta Air Show is a fantastic new event for Atlanta Motor Speedway that will offer fans a unique variety of aerial entertainment not often seen at facilities like ours. We look forward to working with B. Lilley Productions to produce a quality show that attracts people from all across our region,” said Ed Clark, President of Atlanta Motor Speedway.
