I always thought NASCAR was a bunch of rednecks and I was right but boy they know how to have a good time and party till they fall off the roofs of their RV's. Really nice people and a good ole time in the South. Thanks for letting the Yankee in.

Wow! No handicap seating in the club section. We pay a lot for these seats every year and they continue to ignore the fact that handicap seating is needed. The ADA needs to get involved!

This place is massive!!! Not huge Nascar fan but it was fun! I was impressed with the overall operations. Lots of people on the premise to ensure safety which is always a plus! If you love Nascar definitely catch a race here!

We had a great day.Everyone was very very nice. We had a great day, my only complaint if you are not in a wheelchair you can not park close to the door. That makes it very hard for people that have problems walking. If you have a permit that has your Doctors signature then that must be followed!

Great location, plenty of parking, reasonable prices. The best part about this track is that it was clean. The bathrooms had attendants and were maintained throughout the entire event. Everyone was very courteous and kind. Great hospitality and we enjoyed the infield pit passes we purchased. Would love to have the option for garage access someday. Plenty of parking even... More

Race, as usual, at Charlotte was very boring...no drama at all. I am so glad I got a free ticket in, because I would not pay 79 dollars plus taxes to view that. Been to several and all the same..if you wanna go to sleep, its guaranteed you will! Save you money and watch from the comfort of your own... More

I am at CMS several times throughout the year, usually for a different reason each time. We attend the NASCAR races, the car shows, Christmas lights and do the Color Run each year. CMS is always a great place to be! They also have the driving experience going on most of the time so you can usually find something to... More

Incredible history at the epicenter of Nascar. Perfectly placed in the middle of NC and spotless. There is a 4 lane drag strip and a dirt track.
