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

Pro's The classroom instructor was very good "Rocky" My spotter "Phillip was great and informative. Con's The ride along that was touted to improve your driving experience did not teach you anything as the driver never spoke to you or explained anything. The video of your experience did not work and the camera in the car recorded nothing. The track... More

We took the 1hr "feel the thrill" tour on a day and time when we almost had the place to ourselves. Katarina was our tour guide and she obviously loves her job and racing and telling us all about the speedway and taking everywhere she could and maybe a couple she should not have. She really made it fun and... More

We were visiting family in Charlotte who took us to the Charlotte Motor Speedway for a visit. The reasonably priced van tours that day included entering the track and speeding along the embankments to give the thrill of NASCAR racing. I'm not a fan of the sport, but I did enjoy the 2-hour drive in and out of the various... More
