2024 NASCAR Ambetter Health 400: How to watch, schedule and more

The 2024 NASCAR Cup Series is underway following an eventful Daytona 500, and now all eyes turn among racers and teams to the next chapter of the season, with the Ambetter Health 400.

The event, formerly held late in the season, is the second event on the calendar this year and presents an opportunity to lay down further markers as February closes at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Georgia.

Last year's victor, Joey Logano, will be chasing back-to-back successes, but the Team Penske driver will simply hope to improve on a frustrating start to the year at Daytona after he could only muster a 22nd-place finish. With a long road between now and the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs in September and three dozen competitive races throughout the campaign and post-season, every racer will want to make a good impression regardless.
