Its a great track to see a race, they have a huge tv screen along the back stretch so you can see all the action.Our seats weren't too... More

This is always a great venue for hosting thousands of custom and classic cars. Of course, I go for the swap meet. The show is also attended by many parts vendors -- nice to be able to ask technical questions about their products, too!

Charlotte is only the second track that I have been to. I was impressed with the lack of traffic and the nice flow of vehicles and people. I suggest getting to the track a few hours before the race. There are vendors outside the track, which usually have cheaper prices than inside the track. There are vendors inside the track,... More

I have been to the races here multiple times. The B of A 500 was a great time as always. My son and I had great seats and really enjoyed ourselves as usual. We will definitely be back.

Saw the NASCAR Bank of America 500. Exciting! The race, the jets flying overhead, the noise. A great experience.

Fun place to watch a night race, we had a great view of the track even from our cheap seats. The only complaint was the traffic control exiting the track - SUPER frustrating to get back to our hotel.

Well it was rainy and not much cover for people. I know they can't control the weather. But they should think about that in case of bad weather. Our cooler was stolen. Elevators were very crowded wonder if that is safe to allow so many people on them. Traffic was awful very crowded would never bring my kids there.

Recently I had an opportunity to visit the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Bank of Anerica NASCAR race. It was a great time-the garages and pit row were awesome. Difficult to watch the whole race from Pit Row. Restrooms and food options were great. The Midway was disappointing. Be prepared to walk. Getting into the infield is a challenge. Shuttles... More

We sat in the GM section for both races and had a great view of the track. We were on row 34 for one and 38 for the other. Lots of great food and fun! Also plenty of places to buy souvenirs.

I have been here before 3 times, but the first time for a race. This race was a night race. I sat in turn one in the upper level. You can see all of track but hard to see the pits down by turn 4. The only complaint was I wish the track was a bit brighter.
