  • Great track to visit. The stand are nice and offer a great view except in the covered seating where you side view is blocked by the indoor seating. Bring a cooler! No one has water except if you want to spend $2 on a bottle of water. For smaller races not all food vendors will be open, but still a good selection to choose from.
  • First race! The facility was very nice. As for the race I fell asleep 3 times! I thought it would be exciting and action packed but 400 laps of going around in circles with nothing eventful happening was like watching paint dry! The rain was the most exciting part!
  • Very disappointed with Charlotte motor speedway. Definitely sticking with Pocono going forward. I bought pit-passes for my kids and was not allowed in because they closed access early. Check the site around noon if you have put passes because they take full advantage of their "subject to change" disclaimer. They also won't let you in with a stroller, not even one of those little umbrella strollers. The people at the gate don't know what's going on and were pretty rude. The bathrooms are disgusting. There's also not much for your young ones to do. It took us an hour just to get out of the parking lot when the race was over. Such a clusterf*** because they shut the road down and there's only 1 way to exit the lot for about 5000 cars. The only thing I liked was you can actually see the entire track from your seat, you including the back straightaway. But we are officially a Pocono family.
  • I love the racing here. It's not far away from my home but I do camp when I go. I love camping at Rock City campground.
  • Great experience!! Staff was incredibly helpful and polite! The ride around the track was great!! Highly recommend!
