As a special “thank you,” to all the fans that support Legend Car and Bandolero racing, Charlotte Motor Speedway will host Fan Appreciation Night this Tuesday during Round Six of the Kangaroo Express Summer Shootout Series.

The first 500 fans through the gates will receive a free gift bag, while the first 1,000 fans will receive a free T-shirt. The Kangaroo Express Summer Shootout Series, which runs each Tuesday night through Aug. 10, features two classes of Bandolero racing and four divisions of Legend Cars.

Tickets for the Kangaroo Express Summer Shootout Series are only $7 for adults, $3 for kids 6-12 and kids under 6 are admitted free. All tickets 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 is scheduled to conclude by 10:00 p.m.

Legend Car and Bandolero fans are in for another special treat this weekend, with the largest grassroots race in history, the Legends Million, Thursday through Saturday. Nearly 300 drivers from 36 states and two foreign countries have registered for the one-of-a-kind race featuring a total purse of $1 million. The A-Feature winner is guaranteed to take home an unprecedented $250,000, while the final spot in the feature is assured $10,000.

The speedway’s Summer Food Drive continues this Tuesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Fans who bring canned goods to the Summer Shootout or Legends Million during the month of July will receive $2 off the purchase of an adult ticket.  All canned goods collected will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte, N.C.
