Charlotte Motor Speedway has a long and storied history and some fans have been here since the very beginning. To honor their loyalty and commitment, Charlotte Motor Speedway has begun a long-time fan program that rewards the fans that keep coming back to the Greatest Place to See the Race.

Fans who have been attending Charlotte Motor Speedway for 50 years or more will receive a granite plaque with their name and photo and will be honored at a ceremony during May Race Weeks. In addition, they will receive benefits including a gold lanyard and photo hard card, a special decal and inclusion on the Charlotte Motor Speedway website, in the souvenir program and on the world’s largest HDTV.

Any fan who has attended Charlotte Motor Speedway for more than five years can take part in the long time fans program by purchasing a lanyard and hard card for just $7.99. The lanyard and hard card ensure that Speedway staff and other fans recognize fans that no longer have a “rookie stripe” at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The rewards grow as fans return to Charlotte Motor Speedway year after year with special milestones and additional benefits at 10 years, 15 years, 25 years, 40 years and 50 years.

Tickets start at just $39 for the May 19 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, $49 for the May 27 Coca-Cola 600 and $99 for all three days of the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, April 13-15.

Tickets and camping can be purchased by calling the speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267) or online at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com.
