Even though it was a foggy/rainy day. The tour was great. Got to see Media areas including their on site radio broadcast studio, Speedway Club Restaurant, club seating area (climate controlled) - One of the best places to watch the race. Toured the Drag Strip facility. Lots of areas that most of the public doesn't get access to. Checked out... More

WE took our Grandchildren Christmas shopping at Concord Mills the first week of December. That evening we went to Speedway Christmas at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Incredible experience. Best light display ever. It was even enough to distract the kids from their phones.... and that's saying a lot.

Been going to this track for years. Sat every where there. My favorite is still the infield where you can camp and make a weekend out of it. They have made some improvements there which are nice. Last race i was in a suite on the 4th turn. Seats very comfortable. The food was good but the selection of alcoholic... More

There light show was amazing and everyone enjoyed it, my biggest disappointment was the 10 dollars extra we paid for the express lane but the express lane is a Friday - Sunday only but they do not tell you that on the internet so they make an additional 10 dollars off of you and when you ask the person at...

My friend came into Charlotte, and we decided to take our spouses to the Christmas lights at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Wow! It was fantastic. The guys loved the fact that you could drive on the track, and the women loved everything else. It was a bit rainy, but the live Nativity, petting zoo, and Christmas village were all wonderful at...

The Christmas Lights were very pretty and they moved to the music played through your radio .... and you get to drive where the race cars drive which is neat.

Our family went to Charlotte for an overnight trip from Raleigh to see the Christmas Lights, as we had visited and enjoyed about three years ago.... Even though we had visited the day after Christmas the previous trip, we were totally surprised by the amount of cars upon our arrival this past Saturday night!! We had arrived in Charlotte about...
