NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jimmie Johnson is no stranger to crushing the competition at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Tuesday, the legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway's winningest NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver took that to a whole new level when he traded in his 800-horsepower stock car for a World War II tank.
A mint-condition 1973 Pontiac Trans Am, owned by Charlotte, North Carolina resident, Mark Brantley, beat out stiff competition at the fall AutoFair and was chosen Best of Show as the four-day automotive spectacular came to a close on Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
This Thursday through Sunday, thousands of families and car enthusiasts will pour into Charlotte Motor Speedway for a full weekend of automobiles and entertainment at the AutoFair. The four-day extravaganza will feature the largest display of exotics in the history of Autofair, a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the GTO, a DockDogs canine aquatics diving contest, Terracross UTV racing and much more.
