Built in 1959, the superspeedway hosts three Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series events, two NASCAR Xfinity Series races and a NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series race each year – each with exciting pre-race entertainment and concerts. More than three dozen other events for automotive and motorsports enthusiasts of all ages take place at Charlotte Motor Speedway including the Summer Shootout short-track series, the world’s largest automotive extravaganza at AutoFair in the spring and fall, and the NASCAR Racing Experience. There's no better place to check "drive a stock car" off your bucket list than the legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway located in the heart of "Where Racing Lives!" Along with these thrilling events and activities, Charlotte Motor Speedway offers daily tours, and fans can enjoy more racing action at zMAX Dragway and The Dirt Track at Charlotte.
