“The Charity Trees at Speedway Christmas is more than a festive display, it’s a chance for attendees to give back to the community in a special way,” said Taylor Kirby, the director of SCC’s North Carolina chapters. “Speedway Children’s Charities of North Carolina created this fundraiser to give 15 charities a chance to raise awareness in the local area and receive funds to support their missions. By participating in this fundraiser, attendees can make an impact on the lives of children in need.”

Revelers can enjoy 5 million dazzling lights along a four-mile course, take a stroll through a life-size candy land and slide down the Cook Out Tubing Hill, all at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Families can make a pit stop in the Christmas Village to vote on their favorite Charity Tree, capture a memorable photo with the jolly old man in the red suit and cozy up next to the fire pit alongside friends and loved ones. Speedway Christmas presented by Atrium Health has something for every person to enjoy during the holiday season.
