Atlanta Motor Speedway is home to NASCAR this weekend as the Ambetter 400 comes full force to Hampton, Georgia (FOX and the FOX Sports App).

William Byron is looking to make it two in a row as he heads to Atlanta fresh off a win at the Daytona 500. He’ll start the race in 11th place (row 6) while Michael McDowell begins in the front row after his first career NASCAR Cup Series pole on Saturday, which he captured with a 178.844 mph lap speed. 

Joey Logano starts beside McDowell in the front row, but the No. 22 car will have to do a pass-through at the race’s start due to being penalized for a glove he wore during qualifying rounds.

Here are the top moments from the 260 lap, 400.4-mile course in Georgia!

Collision course!

The caution flag came out just one lap after drivers roared through the green flag, as the largest pileup in Atlanta Motor Speedway (16 cars) history caused a massive scrum.

Logano starts at the back

Despite starting front-row after capturing the pole last week at Daytona, Joey Logano will have to do a pass-through on Lap 1 after he was penalized for a glove he wore during qualifying. Larry McReynolds explained what happened with the infraction.
