My husband did the Nascar Driving Experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway over the weekend. He can't stop smiling even going to work on Monday. This was his second time driving. The first experience was at Richmond International Speedway last year. He loved this racetrack much better than RIR. I think he's got the racing bug now.

Arlene was our tour guide and she is a wonderful lady. She has been there for so long her knowledge is first hand. I'm going to paste from the web site as this is exactly it: The Over the Wall Tour is designed for the hard-core NASCAR fan. This intimate group tour includes all the details of the Feel the... More

The AutoFair once again was an awesome time! Lots of walking but workers here are more than willing to give you golf cart rides. The amount of parts and cars that are displayed around is just amazing. I definitely recommend anyone with a slight interest in cars to attend the next CMS AutoFair!! The facility is nice and the staff... More

This is the place to be if you are a old car enthusiast. You can get anything from a screw to a complete car. Hundreds and hundreds of vendors of anything to do with restoring or building cars. A must see but be prepared for lots of walking and few places to sit for a rest or to get out... More

I was at the Charlotte Motor speedway for a car show/ car auction with my son. As I have never been to a racetrack before, I was amazed the size of this place. We walked the entire track and had a great time. WEAR comfortable shoes !! I would love to back and see a race.

I liked that the one hour tour was only $12, very reasonable. Our tour guide was nice. I have been touring the NASCAR tracks in our travels and this is average in overall comparison. Other tracks you get to walk on the start finish line, and go into the media center and a sky box, this tour did not include... More

I had the opportunity to experience the Speedway club during my recent trip. The view is awesome. The food at the Speedway club was good and the wait staff and D.J. were on point as well. I also took a ride in one of their pace cars around the track it was an awesome experience. Please visit the Speedway if... More

Any nascar fan should most def visit CMS at least once and take the tour that brings you around the facility. In my opinion the coke 600 race is also a must see event....great atmosphere with lots going on in Charlotte area that weekend! The place is off the hook, you won't be disappointed
