As av avid and die hard NASCAR fan, I wanted my wife to experience the track tour. The tour itself is great with the lap around the track, getting out in victory lane, drag race at ZMax, etc, but the info provided was lacking.

We took our 9 year old son on the tour. He loved it when our tour van sped around the track and then later raced down the drag strip! We learned a lot about Nascar racing and highly recommend this tour.

A speedway tour that takes you on the road course, a lap around the oval and down the drag strip - can't get much better than that. Charlotte Motor Speedway has it all. Excellent tour and a great value!

My staff and I were granted a private speedway tour June 2015 when we were in town for a conference. Getting ready we joked about getting to drive cars/sit in cars/etc. as we signed the waivers and read the rules and regs. My inner adrenaline junkie was hoping for something cool...but doubting it. Our guides met us at the tower... More

The MECCA of NASCAR. If your a NASCAR fan you shouldnt even be reading this. CMS is a must for you. IF you hate NASCAR and think its always another left turn. Sit in a NASCAR race check out what it is about before judging. This place is amazing. I have gone to many tracks around the US. CMS is... More

Love this track! I have been to CMS several times for a NASCAR race, and have had a great time each and every time! There is plenty of parking, entertainment, food, etc. The big screen monitor is perfect for where ever you are sitting. If your lucky enough to be able to take a track right, do so, it's great...

Every time I go to CMS Bruton Smith has done a little more to make watching a race more fun! From pre-race shows and activities, to new food offerings and concessions, this is a great activity to be part of. There are ticket prices and packages to fit every budget.I have watched the race from the luxury boxes as well... More

My uncle really loves NASCAR, so I was kind of forced to go here. I had a great time! We did the regular $12 tour of the grounds, and it was interesting. You drive around in an air conditioned van for about an hour and the tour guide gives you some history. We got out of the van at pit... More

I was photographing as media an event this past weekend and was pleasantly surprised at how well the event was run. I travel a lot for photography and the staff was over the top friendly and helpful. Not something you see at every NASCAR track. Think coming back to race my car at the new roval is in my future!
