NASCAR crew member ejected ahead of the race at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Today, the NASCAR Cup Series unloads at Atlanta Motor Speedway. It’s the first race on the reconfigured 1.54-mile track.

On track activity was rained out on Friday. Due to that, Saturday’s qualifying session was canceled and replaced with a practice session.
Ahead of today’s race, the team rolled through inspection. We’ve seen just one issue.
Failed two times:
Ejected: Cody Sauls (Car Chief)
