Ambetter Health, America’s number one Marketplace Health Insurer, is expanding its partnership with Atlanta Motor Speedway (AMS) to become the entitlement sponsor for a NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) race at the speedway as part of a multi-year agreement that begins in 2023. The Ambetter Health 500 will headline the speedway’s spring NASCAR weekend.
“We’re excited to build on our relationship with Atlanta Motor Speedway to sponsor the Ambetter Health 500,” said Brent Layton, President & Chief Operating Officer for Centene Corporation, Ambetter’s parent company. “Through this partnership we have the opportunity to further connect with racing fans and educate them on our cause to ensure all Americans are able to get high-quality healthcare.”
“Ambetter Health has been a great partner of Atlanta Motor Speedway and Speedway Motorsports and we’re thrilled to have them on board for 2023 and beyond,” said Atlanta Motor Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager Brandon Hutchison. “We look forward to working together with Ambetter to help keep people healthy, and we know they’ll bolster our efforts to provide an unforgettable weekend of entertainment for our fans.”
Dawsonville, Ga., native and 2020 NASCAR Cup Series Champion Chase Elliott is partnering with Atlanta Motor Speedway and Ambetter to create a special ticket package that offers race fans an enhanced experience for the 2023 Ambetter Health 500. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Chase Elliott Foundation and Ambetter Health will also match a percentage of ticket sales to the Foundation. More information on this special ticket package will be announced at a later date.
“There’s a lot of momentum right now around Atlanta Motor Speedway since the recent reconfiguration and new pavement led to more exciting racing last March,” said Elliott. “I’m excited to partner with Ambetter and the speedway to help make the Ambetter Health 500 spring race a must-attend event for NASCAR fans.”
