Went on their hour van tour option (I think $10.00) and saw the Speedway complex spread of 20,000 acres from a comfortable spot with a few walking stops too. Wow. So much, so complex and so huge. I am not a NASCAR fan but I do appreciate cars and all the stuff that goes with them. What a fascinating hour,... More

Was fortunate to have a business conference at the speedway..We used the media center as our classroom.. There is a $5 track tour that leaves on the hour from the gift shop. Had lunch at the Speedway Club restaurant. Great food and atmosphere over looking the entire track.

Our Charlotte Motor Speedway experience is limited to the Christmas light show, and we love it. The kids LOVE getting to ride on the track. It's always just a wholesome, fun time!

It's a racing Mecca, with a NASCAR track, dirt track, and a 4-wide drags trip literally within a stone's throw of one another, and the Hendrick and Roush and other race shops nearby. A spouse that's not into racing, no worries, there are plenty of other diversions nearby.

We spent the weekend in Charlotte for Valentine's day and had already decided to do the track tour. We opted for the 1 hour tour because my boyfriend had taken the tours previously and we had several other things to see. Our guide Melissa, was very knowledgeable and friendly. It is definitely worth the $12 to go around the track... More

Took the whole family, kids and grandkids -everybody liked it. We saw all the tracks, quad lane drag-strip, go-kart, lawn mower, dirt track and the big one. Had fun running around the track, stopping and sitting, sideways, on the banked turn. Went to victory "lane" and had our pictures taken, drove through the pits and garage area. Great time for...

Lots and lots of walking but I had a lot of fun even though I am not a NASCAR fan. I went with a family of 5 and we all had the time of our life.

Whether they are fans of NASCAR or not, when we have visitors in town I always take them to see the speedway. Going to a race is something everyone should do at least once, but even if you are in town on a week when there is not a race, it is still an impressive sight to see. The speedway... More
