Editor Review

Stadium Scene Editor

For all of those who were newbies like me: you can bring your own beer inside!!!! There is a lot going on at NASCAR races, and a lot of the action happens outside the track. Inside, there isn’t a bad view in the stands. They recently opened a party deck, which I would highly recommend checking out. Also, bring your sunscreen and hat as there is nothing blocking you from the sun here.

Stadium Information

About Charlotte Motor Speedway:

With its first race in 1960, this 1.5 mile track hosts NASCAR racing including the Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend, the NASCAR All-Star Race, and the Bank of America 500. The quad oval has turns banked at 24 degrees. This complex is 2,000 acres and also features a .25 mile four-lane drag strip.

Tour Info:

You can take a tour of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series garage, ride through the race track and get your picture in "Winner's Circle", and also learn some history of the track while riding in a comfortable van.

Security Screenings:

Like almost all US and Canadian Stadiums, you will need to enter through a metal detector before entering the stadium.  Be sure to give yourself extra time and don't bring any weapons or devices that could be seen as a weapon inside.  Pat down searches may be required.

Bag Policy:

One soft-sided bag or soft-sided cooler no larger than 14" x 14" x 14" may be brought into the track.  All bags subject to search before entry.

Note: Bag and security policy listed above are for typical sporting events. Special events, concerts, and other situations may result in variation to the policy. Please check event website for any changes or variation.
