ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  NASCAR rolling into Atlanta this weekend for Sunday's Kobalt Tools 500.

The driver who won last year's spring race at Atlanta paid a visit to Albany  Friday morning.

Former NASCAR Cup champion Kurt Busch making a second visit to the MillerCoors Brewery in Albany.

The Miller Lite brand is the main sponsor for Kurt Busch's Penske Dodge.

Kurt was happy to sign autographs and later toured the Albany brewery.

After the tour, it was off to Hampton for qualifying Friday night and Sunday's race.

Kurt says one of the keys to victory in Atlanta always comes in the pits.

Kurt Busch said. "Hope to do it again. You are out there sliding around all day long trying to get the car just right but when it comes down time for the money stop you have got to be there in the end."

Busch is 19th in the points standings after three races.

The Kobalt Tools 500 is Sunday afternoon at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in Hampton.
