New 600 Salutes Beer to Rev Up Refreshment at Coca-Cola 600
Memorial Day Weekend marks the official kickoff to summer and NASCAR fans the world over know there’s no better place to celebrate than America’s Home for Racing and the Coca-Cola 600. Continuing a recent tradition, Charlotte Motor Speedway, in collaboration with Cabarrus Brewing Company, will once again mark the momentous weekend with a limited release of their latest commemorative craft beer – 600 Salutes: A Race Day Classic.
The easy-drinking all-American wheat ale, brewed with North Carolina-grown barely and a touch of orange peel, offers a crisp and refreshing way to keep fans cool as the on-track action heats up throughout the entire Coca-Cola 600 race weekend. The keepsake one-pint cans, featuring a red, white and blue Uncle Sam raising a toast to summer, are a great way to memorialize a perfect weekend at the track.
Fans can find the 600 Salutes at concession stands throughout the property during race weekend or as a limited release at local retailers. In addition, 600 Salutes merchandise will be available at the speedway’s gift shop.
