Things to See in Charlotte

NASCAR Hall of Fame – A tribute to the history of NASCAR and the drivers, crew members and team owners who popularized the fast-paced sport, the Hall of Fame is part museum and part interactive racing experience. One of the most popular exhibits is “Glory Road,” a banked ramp leading to the second floor that highlights racetracks around the U.S. and showcases historic racecars.
Charlotte Motor Speedway – With the nickname “The Beast of the Southeast,” the Speedway is the pulse of racing action in Charlotte. The 1.5-mile oval track hosts two major races every season – the Coca-Cola 600 and the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race. On non-race days, fans can take a guided tour of the facility that includes stops at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage, pit road and Victory Circle. The tour also includes a ride around the track to feel the force of the 24-degree banking turns.
zMAX Dragway – Part of Charlotte Motor Speedway, the state-of-the-art drag strip is one of the best in the world. Fans fill the stands to watch NHRA Drag Racing and the Summer Drag and Brag street racing series. The quarter-mile track also hosts pro stock motorcycle and car races.
Richard Petty Driving Experience and NASCAR Racing Experience – NASCAR isn’t just a spectator sport. Fans can get in on the high-speed action at a professional racing school where the options range from riding shotgun in a stock car at speeds up to 165 mph to getting behind the wheel for racing lessons before speeding off around the track. It’s the only place in Charlotte where drivers are encouraged to put the pedal to the metal.
Victory Lane Karting – The 1/3-mile road course at Victory Lane Indoor Karting is reported to be the fastest in the Carolinas – drivers reach top speeds of 45 mph.
