We invite Veterans and their families to the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina for a multi-day NASCAR event for fun and the opportunity to speak with our onsite VA benefits representatives about benefit information.
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 includes a ride along the 24-degree banked track via a Feel the Thrill Speedway Tour.
Fans can also enroll in one of the driving experience classes offered in schools by racing greats like Dale Jarrett or Richard Petty.
