The Heart Of NASCAR:
Since 1960 this famous 1.5 mile quad-oval has hosted some legendary races. The World 600, now known as the Coca-Cola 600, on Memorial Day weekend has been a track staple since the speedway opened. The fall Sprint Cup race is part of the Chase for the Sprint Cup 10-race playoff and is well on its way to building a history all its own.
In addition to a truck series event in May and a Nationwide Series race to compliment both of its cup series event Charlotte Motor Speedway also hosts the Sprint All-Star Race (formerly known as "The Winston"). This non-points shootout format was designed purely for the fans excitement, and it delivers.
Track owner Bruton Smith has a well-deserved reputation for putting the fans first and although the track is over 40 years old, Charlotte Motor Speedway is one of the best places on the NASCAR circuit to watch a race. Modern, well-kept facilities, great sight lines, lots of related activities and well-planned traffic flow make any trip to see NASCAR race at its "home track" a great fan-friendly experience.
