Kick off your race week on Wednesday night, Oct. 7, at zMAX Dragway with NASCAR street drags and a hauler parade!  The NASCAR industry has been invited to bring their personal hot rods to the fastest concrete drag strip in the world for some straight-line fun. Before the burnouts begin, the NASCAR haulers will parade down the drag strip on their way to the infield at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Bank of America 500 weekend.  Gates open at 5 p.m. and the hauler parade is at 6 p.m. followed by street drags.  Admission to the general public is free with any donation at the gates to Speedway Children’s Charities.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers leave it all on the track during knockout qualifying to set the field for the only Saturday night race in the Chase, the Bank of America 500. Bojangles' Pole Night also features the Better Half Dash, as the ladies of NASCAR duel in a 25-lap charity race while their husbands and boyfriends coach/spot from the sidelines. The evening wraps up with the ground-pounding action of the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour doing battle on the frontstretch quarter-mile as the best modified drivers on the planet race to decide the championship.

It’s ALL included plus early afternoon Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series practice sessions for just one ticket.  And kids 13 and under get in FREE!

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series

Sparks will fly as the intensity heats up in the only Saturday night race in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.  Last year’s action spilled over from the track into the garage and this year we expect even more fisticuffs in the first race of the Contender Round. It’s a 500-mile battle that could make or break Championship dreams.

Country music superstar Hunter Hayes will rev up the crowd with a full one hour pre-race concert broadcast on the gigantic Speedway TV, then daredevil Erendira Wallenda will perform breathtaking aerial acrobatics while suspended from a helicopter.  Her grand finale? She’ll hang by her toes---with no net!  It’s all included with your Bank of America 500 race ticket!
