There should, at the very least, be a warning at the entrance of the amount of time you will waste just trying to get in. It is only open 4 hours but took us 3 hours to get in and see some mediocre lights. The...More

This was AWFUL the line took 2 hours just together into the speedway for the light show. The lights were just fairytales then after 3 hours you finally get to the real show. THIS IS A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!

I'd never been before and we went had a blast. The atmosphere was just crazy. The noise from the track to the hub bub around our seats. Every one was having a really good time. Would definitely recommend going to the sprint car races.

This is an amazing facility! It is pretty intimidating driving up to it from virtually any direction. Have experienced several events and opportunities at Charlotte Motor Speedway, including the NASCAR experience where you are able to drive a real race car around the track. Amazing!...More

I was there for the first Roval! Way up at the top of the Ford Stand. Perfect seats. I took away only one thing. The hunger, the inner demons, and the history cannot be denied. I witnessed men throw it all down. Give up points...More

Love the new format! ROVAL racing really was exciting. Was pleased with the whole event. State Troopers got everyone in and out in a timely manner. Parking was normal, track staff always friendly. Food was not over priced like most places around here. Looking forward...More
