As Charlotte prepares for the upcoming Sprint All-Star Race and Coca-Cola 600 on May 21 and May 29, respectively, Walmart is giving racing fans more reason to get excited with its new Race Time program. Walmart customers and NASCAR fans can purchase the Walmart Family Track Pack available exclusively through Walmart.com/NASCAR for both races. The discount ticket package includes four race tickets, four hot dogs, four beverages and one race program for just $99, a savings of nearly $100 for a family of four.

"We've found that nearly nine out of 10 NASCAR fans chose to shop at Walmart[ii]," said Walmart market manager John Jones. "We wanted to provide Charlotte race fans with unbelievable savings on NASCAR tickets and merchandise and unique Race Time experiences that you can only find at Walmart."
