"Charlotte Motor Speedway is located in the heart of racing country. There are so many exciting things to do in the area that, you may want to stay a few extra days to see it all.
NASCAR's Hall of Fame is also located in Charlotte, North Carolina. This state-of-the-art facility honors NASCAR icons and creates an enduring tribute to drivers, crew members, team owners and others who have impacted the sport.
The May Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series All-Star race in Charlotte is held the week before Memorial Day weekend and the Coca Cola 600 every year. This is an evening race, and watching NASCAR under the lights is another reason to visit Charlotte. Our seats for the races are in the New Veranda section and are not available to the general public. They have their own level of concessions and restrooms, usually cleaner and less crowded. The Veranda seating also allows access to the Speedway Club, which has a gift shop and other concessions. You won’t miss any of the action with all the big screen TV’s located in the Speedway Club.
We stay at a full-service Embass Suites hotel located near the Charlotte Douglas Airport (CLT). The hotel offers many amenities, including complimentary airport shuttle. The hotel is located just 15 minutes from the speedway, so the motor coach ride is short and comfortable. We also park right out in front of the track, so the amount of walking is limited.
Weather during the All-Star weekend is usually fair with highs in the low 70s and lows in the 50s."
