Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 is a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race held annually at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in the spring. It has been run since 1960 and has been run in conjunction with Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series races. For the 2015 season, the race was moved from Labor Day to the first weekend of March as the second race of the season. Darlington Raceway's race moved to Atlanta's former position while Phoenix International Raceway's spring race, which was on the current Atlanta date, moves a few weeks ahead to Bristol Motor Speedway's former date.
