NASCAR race at Atlanta spring 2023: Start time, TV, streaming, lineup for Ambetter Health 400
The NASCAR Cup Series returns to the Eastern time zone following a three-race West Coast swing — a trip that was extremely successful for driver William Byron.
The Hendrick Motorsports driver won two of three races — last week at Phoenix Raceway and two weeks ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway — and now heads to a track where he has already celebrated in victory lane: Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Byron took the checkered flag at Atlanta one year ago and seeks to become the first driver to win three consecutive races since his teammate Kyle Larson won three in a row in May and June of 2021.
The rest of the field, meanwhile, is hoping to blunt Byron's momentum and speed to victory on Sunday. Here is all the information you need to get ready for the Ambetter Health 400 at Atlanta Motor Speedway:
