Charlotte Motor Speedway's infield grass has its iconic Bank of America 500 logo painted and ready as race fans prepare to converge on the speedway for Sunday afternoon's action-packed return to "Daylight Racing Time."

Alan Jones of the Jones Sign Company oversaw the infield grass painting process, which required nearly 2,000 gallons of paint to cover three acres with logos.

The track preparations are part of the lead-up to the first afternoon-scheduled Bank of America 500 in 15 years - a knock-down, drag-it-out battle featuring 12 Playoff drivers dueling for an all-important victory to clinch a berth in the Round of 8.
