The early years of Charlotte Motor Speedway were fraught with challenges like flagging sales and changing ownership. The Speedway's core principle of always putting the customer first would be essential to its success. Since 1960 it has had multiple multimillion dollar innovations, transforming the humble speedway into 20,000-acre area outfitted with plenty of opportunities for tailgating, camping, and race events for the whole family.
Camping is done on one of the many fully stocked lots, with both RV and tent areas available. Containing event halls, racing schools, and a smaller track for dirt bikes means there is always something going on at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Even before a race starts, there is the opportunity for people to crowd around and tailgate, ride one of the arrays of attractions in the Fan Zone and even listen to amazing music. Food options range from deep-fried goodness to buffets and luxury meals.
