I was invited by a friend to experience the Coca-Cola 600 race. I was fortunate to receive "hot" passes. Which meant we could mingle between the pit road and the seats we had in the stands. It was Memorial Day weekend. The beginning of the day for us was a fabulous concert by rock legends ZZ top. I have always... More

I have visited this facility several times and have made a couple of laps myself. Charlotte Motor Speedway is in a league of its own. The racing here is great and they take pride in there racing. I will be back for sure.

We took the "Feel the Thrill Speedway Tour" and were quite pleased. Our tour guide, Toriano Gray, was very informative and a good driver! The tour takes you around the entire facility and you learn about the history of the track. Unfortunately, the vans are not wheelchair accessible, but we were able to put my son in the van and...

My husband and I keep the same seats for the May race each year. Our seats are located at the start of turn one and the exit off pit road. All the staff at the track are extremely nice and there is ample parking within walking distance to the track. We have enjoyed these seats so much we are now... More

Mini car races and school bus races as well as Monster Trucks were good. The school bus race did not start until late that was fun but found mini cars boring. Kids also liked Monster trucks but noisy and dusty.

My kids and I went when the military gave us some tickets. We sat with several other military families. We had so much fun that we chose to go back several more times. Every time we go we sit in different seats to get different perspectives. We've never had any bad seats. The place is great.

I have been to dover track and can never get from my seat location of on other side back to my car. Charlotte rocks... More
