With the assistance of professional wrestling great Ric Flair, Charlotte Motor Speedway unveiled a special fight poster previewing “The Backyard Brawl,” NASCAR’s Sprint All-Star Race today and announced that the first 5,000 fans to purchase a ticket to the May 22 race will receive a free limited-edition copy of the print featuring NASCAR’s hottest drivers.
“With $1 million at stake, sparks are going to fly and tempers will flare during the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “The All-Star Race has featured some of the best on-track battles in the sport’s history.
