Fans in attendance at the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series this Tuesday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway will get an early taste of the adrenaline-pumping action of the Red Bull Global Rallycross series. Straight from the X Games, drivers Steve Arpin, Nelson Piquet Jr., Patrik Sandell, Sverre Isachsen and Bucky Lasek will be on hand for autographs and appearances.

The autograph session will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the main grandstand concourse. Fans will also see a special exhibition featuring one of the 600-horsepower, all-wheel drive, turbo-charged compact cars, which go from 0 to 60 in less than two seconds. 

In addition, Lasek, a 14-time X Games medalist, will jump behind the wheel of a Legend Car to compete with Summer Shootout regulars in the Security Force Legend Car Masters division.

Red Bull Global Rallycross comes to The Dirt Track at Charlotte July 25-26. General admission tickets for adults are $25 per day or $40 for a two-day pass. Tickets for children 13 and under are $15 per day or $25 for a two-day pass. Each ticket is a paddock pass, allowing access to see the teams and drivers work on the cars.

Each night of the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series features a full slate of the nation's best Legend Car and Bandolero racing on the frontstretch quarter-mile, as well as appearances by the World's Fastest Mascot, Lug Nut, and tons of family fun.

Families are also welcome to come get a cool down from Charlotte Motor Speedway's fire truck, Engine 343, as it sprays water into the grandstands.
