Home of NASCAR!

This was my first NASCAR experience, and I love this place. It is the home track to 95% of the race teams, it has the Coke 600, it is a great facility!!!

This is an amazing place to visit, even if you are not a race fan. There are several things to enjoy, and a lovely gift shop.

came for the All Star race and had a great time. The new seating is much better and more roomy. We always enjoy our time here, and have sat in several different sections. Something good about all of them.

Always such a great time when going to Charlotte Motor speedway. Went to the fall race. Parked by the dirt track and was offered a shuttle to the ticket gates across the foot bridge. Always such good people there.

The track has easy access with enough area for those to have pre race activities and chill out or sober up before getting back on the road after the race. It is a large modernized track. The races here do not tend to be as exciting as the shorter tracks and the heritage of this track does not have the... More

We toured Bristol two years ago, so this year we stopped at Charlotte. Loved the track tour! Thank you, Melissa! They drive you around the facility and tell you anything you want to know, take you for a fast lap or two around the track, and let you take pictures in the Winner's Circle. So cool!

The Charlotte Motor Speedway Tour gives a full drive-through of all the racing venues -- the history, the layout, how races are conducted -- AND an actual run down the drags trip AND around the big track. If you didn't know before what goes on at a NASCAR track, you will after this.
