For the production’s most complex sequence of the heist, Atlanta Motor Speedway served as the location for many of the close-ups of race cars in action.
The Georgia World Congress Center was used for the racetrack’s underground tunnels.
The film’s climactic burglary was filmed in a warehouse soundstage dressed with a fully functioning pneumatic tubes transport (PTT) system, according to production notes.
"Logan Lucky" began its 36-day shoot in late August 2016 with cast and crew headquartered in Atlanta.
Country music superstar LeAnn Rimes makes a cameo in the film performing "America the Beautiful" before a big race.
The scene was filmed at Atlanta Motor Speedway with a few hundred extras in the stands.
A total of 2,658 Georgia cast and extras were hired for the film, plus 512 crew members, according to the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office.
