"Globe of Death" Daredevils to Captivate Crowd at Charlotte Motor Speedway AutoFair
In just a few weeks, classic car enthusiasts will enjoy gazing at fine automobiles, eating delicious fair food and witnessing heart-racing, jaw-dropping performances from the X-Metal Riders inside the famed "Globe of Death" during the Sept. 24-27 AutoFair at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The extreme Globe of Death is literally action-packed. Three motorcyclists will enter a 40' x 40' metal cage at the same time to execute high-speed, daring stunts while riding just inches apart.
"We are so excited to be part of AutoFair," said Jhonatan Dominguez, founder of the Globe of Death stunt show. "We heard it was a great event for all ages, so we want to bring the best entertainment for the entire crowd. This is a can't-miss show."
Performing since 2006 in front of crowds at Monster Jam, Shrine Circus, Matt Hoffman's Argo Circus and more, the X-Metal Riders have made it their mission to bring the "Globe of Death" to venues all over the world.
"Fans will get to see the some of the coolest Globe of Death performing done by some of the top riders in the world," continued Dominguez. "Also, they will have the opportunity to meet each rider. We will be signing autographs and responding to questions."
Shows will take place on Friday, Sept. 25, at 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 26, at 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. in the kids' play zone next to the Nationwide Showcase Pavilion.
