Charlotte Motor Speedway will partner with regional tourism bureaus and area hotel operators to secure lower room rates for fans attending races during Bank of America 500 Week, Oct. 12 - 15.

More than 40 hotels within approximately one hour of the 1.5-mile superspeedway have agreed to reduce their race week room rates by 15 percent and waive the minimum stay requirements.

“We strive to make the fan experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway second to none,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. “We understand that lodging can be a significant expense and we are very thankful to these area hotels who have taken the initiative to help fans alleviate some of those costs.”

A full list of participating hotels is available at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com/fans/lodging/specials/ or fans can call the speedway’s ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267). In order to obtain the discounted rate, those interested must call the hotels directly and request the Speedway Special when making reservations.

In addition to the lower hotel rates, cost savings extend to the speedway as well. The Bank of America Fan 4 Pack, which includes four race tickets to the Bank of America 500, four hot dogs and four Coca-Cola-brand soft drinks, is available for just $39.75 a person. The Super Ticket is also available, giving fans the opportunity to see four nights of action-packed racing, including Bojangles’ Pole Night qualifying, the World of Outlaws Late Model Showdown at The Dirt Track, the Dollar General 300 Miles of Courage NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the Bank of America 500, starting at just $99.

Charlotte Motor Speedway offers 164 acres of free parking and coolers, limited to 14 inches in any direction, are also permitted in the grandstands.

For fans who are interested in camping instead of a hotel stay, Charlotte Motor Speedway also offers numerous affordable camping options, including Pre-Packaged Campsites – all fans need to bring is clothes! Speedway officials will set-up the campsite, which includes a tent, one lantern, a bottle of propane, sleeping bags and chairs for two, three, five or eight people. There are eight pre-packaged sites located in the infield or outside of the track from which fans can choose.
