Falcons' Loss Forces Atlanta Motor Speedway's Clark To Pay Up

Atlanta Motor Speedway's (AMS) Ed Clark is a man of his word - even if it means wearing a New England Patriots Jersey, raising the team's banner over the track and delivering peaches to Victory Lane at the speedway's sister track, New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS), in Concord, New Hampshire later this year. After all "a bet is a bet." Clark said.

Back when the teams were set for the 2017 Super Bowl, David McGrath of NHMS, proposed a bet with Clark and his staff. If the Falcons won:

Atlanta Falcons flag to be hung outside New Hampshire Motor Speedway office building the next day and during NASCAR race week July 10-16
While wearing a Falcons jersey, David McGrath will present Ed Clark and the March 5 Folds of Honor QuikTrip race winner with New England Lobster in victory lane
Four Falcons and Atlanta Motor Speedway fans will win premium tickets to the July 16 New Hampshire 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway ($500 value)

However, if the Patriots were victorious, then:

New England Patriots flag to be hung outside Atlanta Motor Speedway office building the next day and during NASCAR race week Feb. 27-March 5
While wearing a Patriots jersey, Ed Clark will present David McGrath and the July 16 New Hampshire 301 race winner with Georgia Peaches in victory lane
Four Patriots and New Hampshire Motor Speedway fans will win premium tickets to the March 5 Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway ($400 value)

Clark knows he has to pay off over the Atlanta Falcons' Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots, even if it means taking the risk of getting beat-up by Atlanta fans seeing him in the Tom Brady jersey, he joked. He said he will meet with the New Hampshire fans later in the weekend.
