Charlotte Motor speedway offer two tours which run frequently throughout the day, one lasting 2 hours and the other 1 hours duration. Whilst we just turned up at the racecourse and were able to get onto the 2 hour ‘feel the thrill tour’ but with hindsight I would recommend booking one of the tours in advance. The tour revolves about... More

I have been to the Charlotte Motor Speedway for plenty of non-race-related events (ie: car shows or etc). This is first time I attended a race. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only drag is parking, but that can be expected for such a big venue. However, the crowd left in a pretty timely manner though. No complaints here.... More

I was lucky enough to be able to enjoy a private event at the speedway's Champion's Pavilion. The space was nice, the staff very friendly and the food was very good. I loved the fried chicken and the sweet tea was Southern sweet! YUM!!!

Every year we go for the dirt track races in Nov. Lots of fun, noise and dirt everywhere! We always order our tickets well in advance and make sure to get a hotel near the speedway.

They have some very good car shows, I have never been here for racing. The facilities are kept nice and access is pretty easy, at least for shows. Race weekends are far more difficult.

from the lots to the grandstand, infield, and vip boxes, this place does it up right. Setup camp for the weekend of a race and have a big ol time.

Went to see the Coca Cola 600, great seats, huge area, loud and fast. What more ould you ask for? Bathrooms were crowded but its a nascar race, the beer is only rented people. Concessions were slighly high, but the food was great. If you have not seen a Nascar race, check your first one out here!

This was a little pricey for a family of 5. Most places do not charge for small children but since you must bring their car seat, you have to purchase a seat in the van for each person. That being said, it was well worth it! It was an hour tour, with a very knowledgeable driver. He took us to... More
