According to court documents, AMS claimed in its lawsuit that Pep Boys ceased making payments required under an agreement that would make Pep Boys the sponsor of the fall NASCAR Sprint races in 2008 and 2009. Pep Boys claimed the scheduled date, Labor Day weekend, was during the summer and not the fall and thus it was the speedway that breached the agreement.
Matthew Simmons, marketing and promotions coordinator for the Atlanta Motor Speedway, said he spoke with Ed Clark, president of Atlanta Motor Speedway, about the matter. He said the disagreement between Pep Boys and the speedway has been resolved.
“Everything has been settled and we’re looking forward to the race,” he said, quoting Clark.
The Pep Boys Auto 500 is scheduled for Sept. 6.
