Hosted safety training at the Speedway for our Charlotte customers and enjoyed seeing the facility. The building is well-organized and the staff was exceptionally helpful.

My dad and I won tickets on the radio for the Coca-Cola 600 in May 2016 and we had a blast! Our seats were at the end of Turn 3 and the beginning of Turn 4. The sound of those cars going at almost 200 mph is the best sound you will ever hear! It is so loud! It is... More

Our family came to Charlotte Motor Speedway when my husband participated in the Nascar Driving Experience. He had a fabulous time, and we had the best time watching it.

We went on Dec 30 and viewed the Christmas lights tour - it was nice but not very much different from the lights tour at our local ballpark here in NJ. We also went back 3 days later to do the speedway tour - the one that included the media center tour. That was GREAT! We took my parents and... More

Had been several years since here last and it was nice to come back. We love a good race. Nice to sit back and watch it in person rather than on the tv.

I love Nascar and Charlotte motor speedway is my second favorite speedway in the circuit. Darlington is #1. I love the condos that are at the speedways.

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.
