As Black Friday shoppers battle their way through local stores and shopping malls, motorsports fans should race their way over to Charlotte Motor Speedway the day after Thanksgiving for a unique shopping experience. At the 21st annual Race Ticket and Souvenir Blow-Out on Nov. 29, fans will receive great deals on racing merchandise and have the opportunity to drive their personal vehicles on the legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway.

Those who missed out on their favorite driver's merchandise during the 2013 season will have the opportunity to shop at more than a dozen tents and souvenir trailers. Souvenirs from drivers like Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick and others will include incredible deals, with some items starting at just $1. Also, shoppers will receive a discount on select items purchased in the speedway gift shop.

Along with merchandise, the Charlotte Motor Speedway ticket office will be open for fans looking to stuff stockings with race tickets. Some special ticket deals include: buy one pit pass and get the second at half price and buy four Saturday or Sunday NHRA tickets and get two Friday tickets free. Also, fans who purchase $200 in gift cards, tickets, camping or pit passes will receive a $50 gift card for free.

Fans who spend at least $50 on souvenirs, purchase four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series or NHRA race tickets, or donate $40 to Speedway Children's Charities, can drive their personal vehicle around the 1.5-mile superspeedway. Only at Charlotte Motor Speedway can shoppers purchase gifts for others and receive the gift of speed in return.

The Race Ticket and Souvenir Blow-Out will be open on Friday, Nov. 29 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, contact the Charlotte Motor Speedway gift shop at (704) 455-3202 or online at
