This was a so-so attraction at the Speedway. This is the first year we have attended, we live in the area, so it is close to home. We were at the Speedway for another event which let out early so we said we would give it a try. I grew up in a city in WV that has a light... More

Owens Corning has for the past several years put on a contractors presentation in areas of construction materials and resources to preform better as a business. They feed us a very tasty lunch and then the meetings start. They usually last a couple of hours and then you are given some really cool gifts and invited to take the Richard... More

Took the 2 hour tour and did not expect the most magnificent surprise of tours that could be offered. Our driver and tour guide Denny gave us the most personal tour you could ever ask for. Saw the whole facility from top to bottom and a couple laps around the big oval was the icing on the cake. This tour... More

We stopped by the Raceway for an early-morning tour. What an outstanding event and well worth the money. You learn so much about the track's history and leave with a sense of joy that only comes from being around racing!

We visited Charlotte the same time Matthew (hurricane) did. The Nascar races were both rescheduled for Sunday we were lucky enough to be able to stay an extra day and watch both races.

I went with my husband to do a race car driving experience! It was a beautiful October day, very scenic and strange to see the track so empty and be in the infield! Fun day!

I liked the tour because it was reasonably cheap ($10 for over 55s) and I had never gone 75 mph around a real race track before, even if it was just in the back seat of a van. Somewhere else, I would have scored lower, but for the things I looked to do in the area, I am glad I... More
