Nearly 565,000 horsepower will surge through Charlotte Motor Speedway, zMAX Dragway and The Dirt Track at Charlotte as the legendary motorsports complex showcases its 2010 Fall Season of Speed.


During the next 107 days, Charlotte Motor Speedway will host thousands of race cars, monster trucks, motorcycles and classic cars in the most exciting fall event schedule ever produced for race fans.


""From nitro-burning top fuel dragsters to dirt-slinging sprint cars to America's most popular racing series, we've got something to give every race fan an adrenaline rush," said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. "With this incredible lineup from NASCAR, NHRA and the World of Outlaws, there's no doubt the Charlotte Motor Speedway complex is truly the greatest place to see the race."

Major highlights on the fall calendar include the Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash on Aug. 14; O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals Sept. 16-19; Bank of America 500 Week Oct. 13-16; and the World of Outlaws World Finals Nov. 4-6.


In comparison with the 2009 schedule, there are a few changes and additions to the speedway's 2010 Fall Season of Speed. The Food Lion AutoFair will take place at an earlier date this year, Aug. 26-29, and the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour will close its 2010 season in the UNOH Southern Slam 150 following NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying on Bojangles' Pole Night, Oct. 14. Also, Big-Block Modified fans will have the opportunity to witness history as the Super DIRTcar Series champion will be crowned during the World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Nov. 4-6.


"Thirteen events will take place across our three venues during the next four months to bring nearly a half-million people to the greater Charlotte region," Smith said. "This drives our area economy and puts people to work. Our Fall Season of Speed is unmatched by any other speedway and will create memories for our fans that will last a lifetime."


With children's tickets for many events priced at just $10, entertaining the entire family at a major sports event has never been more affordable. Great ticket packages are available for all events, like the Bank of America 500 Weekend Super Ticket. For just $99, fans can get a ticket to the World of Outlaws Late Model Showdown at The Dirt Track on Oct.


13, Bojangles' Pole Night on Oct. 14, the NASCAR Nationwide Series Dollar General 300 on Oct. 15, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500 Saturday night, Oct. 15.
