No. While the skating rink is located at Charlotte Motor Speedway, it is outside of the confines of the Speedway Christmas route.  You can enjoy both of these attractions independently.

Speedway Christmas is open nightly from Nov. 21 through Jan. 17 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. The show will be closed to the public on Dec. 25 and select nights for private bookings. CLICK HERE for a full event calendar or follow the speedway’s social media channels for updates.

As a self-guided event, times may vary from night to night. Traditionally, the heaviest volume of guests visit on Friday and Saturday nights during the month of December and the week leading into Christmas. If your schedule is flexible, you might consider coming on a different night for the best experience.
