Atlanta $10,000 History

The Atlanta $10,000 Drag Races were first held at Atlanta Speed Shop Dragway in 1964.  It was the first big Top Fuel and Super Stock event in the Southeast.  The race was held annually in October from 1964 until 1972.  At that point the NHRA Gatornationals took over and overshadowed the event.

Forty years later we have ressurected the event with the intention of having the race every October and restoring its former glory from the sixties.  Each year from 2012 going forward we intend to grow and nurture the event while maintaining the lure of Nostalgia style racing:  Family oriented fun without the “in your face” commercialism of modern drag racing.

If you have photos, literature, or other info about the 1964-1972 era of the race, please share it with us at the Geezer Alley tent during the race or send it to us at geezer@atlanta10000.com.  We are trying to compile accurate information about the race in hopes of writing a book about the 1964-1972 era of the race.  We will have a board on display in the Geezer Alley tent with all the race info we have and we hope to get help filling in the blanks from all the sharp minded people in attendance!
