Stationed in Concord, just 13 miles from Charlotte, North Carolina, the Charlotte Motor Speedway is a 2,000-acre motor-sports complex. This massive track sets the stage for NASCAR racing, events, as well as public tours. Containing the only solid concrete, four-lane drag strip in the nation, the Speedway is also a frequent host of NHRA (National Hot Rod Association) events. The Charlotte Motor Speedway is a thrilling attraction for families and racers alike.
