Give this high ratings: my race experience was a 5 lap ride-along with the video pkg. I rode with Patrick in the Make a Wish stock car. I told him up front that I wanted to go FAST. He said OK....we did - what an adrenaline rush. Unfortunately the video didn't work when reviewing and the ladies asked me if... More

We traveled to Charlotte from Virginia to do the Indy Car Experience. What a great time! We live this track. The staff is friendly and informative. The track setup is great. We were able to walk the,track and see the cars before we drove. We lived taking pictures from the observation deck!!

The Speedway offers two tours, Feel the Thrill and Over the Wall. We chose the Over the Wall tour as it was only a couple of dollars more and it was well worth it! Our tour guide (Arlene) was very informative. Put this on your "must see" list while in the Charlotte area. You won't regret it!

I have been to Charlotte Motor Speedway a few times now and I would have to say this is one of the best places to see a NASCAR race. I have sat in a few different locations and always have had a great view of the track!

Absolutely Love Charlotte Motor Speedway! It's been my Home track for Nine years. I moved here from south Florida to be in NASCAR country. Would highly recommend seeing a race or twelve here. 😃

It's difficult to appreciate how large an area is covered within the speedway. There are all kinds of food facilities located in various points within and outside the track area. Bathrooms too. We were here for some volunteer work. One thing that was unique for us, a couple senior citizens. We got an opportunity to ride around the track in... More

This is always a great venue for hosting thousands of custom and classic cars. Of course, I go for the swap meet. The show is also attended by many parts vendors -- nice to be able to ask technical questions about their products, too!
