Atlanta Motor Speedway, a part of Speedway Motorsports Inc., has announced management changes with 24-year veteran Hutchison to oversee day-to-day operations of the 1.5-mile track located just south of the city of Atlanta.

Track President Ed Clark will remain President of the facility and will assist in the transition and continue to work on long-range opportunities for the track and SMI.

“Brandon has been involved in all aspects of the Speedway’s operation over the past 24 years providing him valuable experience that has prepared him for this next step in his career,” said Clark. “I am extremely proud of his growth at Atlanta Motor Speedway and he has proven himself as the absolute right person to take on the added responsibility of running the Speedway.”

Clark has been with SMI for over four decades.

“With more than 42 years of experience in NASCAR and 26 years in Atlanta, Ed will play an important role in the strategic positioning of Atlanta Motor Speedway,” said Speedway Motorsports Inc. CEO Marcus Smith. “While Brandon’s experience has uniquely positioned him to be successful leading the day-to-day operations of the Speedway.”

Hutchison joined Atlanta Motor Speedway as a Public Relations intern in March of 1995 and was hired as a Track Rental Coordinator by the Speedway four months later. He served as the Director of Events and the Vice President of Events before he was promoted to Assistant General Manager in September of 2014.

A native of Georgia, Hutchison grew up in Lawrenceville. He graduated in 1995 with a BS in Communications Arts from Georgia Southern University.  

"It's been a long journey to get to this point," said Hutchison. "I'm extremely thankful for the opportunity and challenges that lie ahead.  We have a great team here at Atlanta Motor Speedway and I know we will continue to build on the successes achieved over the history of the track."
