Charlotte Motor Speedway

Description

Charlotte Motor Speedway opened its doors June 19, 1960 with the first-ever running of the World 600. Since then, this track has become the "hub of stock car racing" and a focal point for race fans the world over. With a total seating capacity of 167,000, the Speedway serves as one of the region's largest tourist attractions, offering racing (as well as non-racing) events some 300 days each year. The Coca-Cola 600 is held here each May; it is the longest Nextel Cup race on the NASCAR circuit. You can get an inside glimpse of this racing mecca by taking a 30-minute tour. You'll walk around the track, tour the garages (as well as the pit area and infield), and make a stop in Victory Circle. Tours cost $5 and are given seven days a week on non-event days. Highlights include a van ride around the track to experience the full-tilt force of the 24-degree banking. For more information, call the gift shop at 704-455-3204. The track is located just off of Highway 29 at the corner of Morehead Road. Exit off I-85 at Speedway Blvd and head east to Highway 29.
