With room for more than 200,000 fans, the grandstands at Charlotte Motor Speedway (formerly the Lowe's Motor Speedway) in North Carolina are always exhilarating. Considered NASCAR's home base, this track hosts events from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the Nationwide Series, the Craftsman Truck Series and the NHRA Powerade Drag Racing Series.
On Memorial Day weekend, the Charlotte Motor Speedway hosts one of the most notable events in motor sports: the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR SPRINT Cup Series race. This race is NASCAR's only 600-mile event, attracting fans from all over the globe to Concord, NC.
Don't miss the Summer Shootout, where fans will enjoy Legends, Bandolero and Thunder Car racing along with family-friendly entertainment like speeding school bus competitions, fireworks and a stunt-filled visit from Lugnut, the World's Fastest Mascot. At less than $10 per person for admission, the Summer Shootout is one of the most affordable family racing events in the U.S.
Devoted racing enthusiasts will love the spectacular souvenir shop in Smith Tower, where they'll find more NASCAR memorabilia and collectibles than any other East Coast fan store. Shop for team hats, apparel, bumper stickers, die-cast vehicles and pit-crew paraphernalia. Take home something for everyone, or complete your NASCAR collection from the North Carolina store's expansive collection of groupie gear.
