$5 Ladies Night and CRASHCars
CRASHCars, the unique entry-level racing machines inspired by "CARS" movie creator John Lasseter, return to Charlotte Motor Speedway for round two of the 10-race Summer Shootout Series tomorrow night. Ladies will be admitted for only $5 to witness the wacky racing action.
Virtually any full- or mid-sized convertible, coupe or sedan can be transformed into a CRASHCar. Station wagons, limousines, Checker Cabs, El Caminos and even hearses are eligible while trucks and sport utility vehicles are not permitted.
Each CRASHCar must have a cartoon-style theme and feature brightly colored paint and graphics. The CRASHCar rulebook is designed to maximize safety while minimizing costs. In addition to the CRASHCar race, the 16th annual Summer Shootout Series, which runs each Tuesday night through Aug.
11, features two classes of Bandolero racing and four divisions of Legends Cars.
Tickets for the Summer Shootout Series are available in advance at the speedway ticket office and at Gates 4 and 5 the night of the event.
Parking is free. Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with preliminary action at 5:30 p.m. Feature racing begins at 7:30 p.m. and concludes by 10:30 p.m.
