Scott, the marketing and promotions director for the facility, passed away Nov. 1 following a lengthy battle with breast cancer.
Scott, 42, was a key member of the AMS team for eight years.
“We will all miss her charisma, her penchant for detail and her way of making any task fun and enjoyable,” AMS president Ed Clark said. “To people throughout the NASCAR and the Atlanta media communities, she was a great friend and a consummate professional.”
Prior to joining the staff at Atlanta, Scott served as a public relations representative for several NASCAR competitors and teams.
