Pit Note: Charlotte Motor Speedway Welcomes First-Time Fans
Charlotte Motor Speedway is throwing out the red carpet for first-time race fans attending this weekend's activities surrounding the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. Ticket inquiries have come from all 50 states, 25 countries and more than 4,100 cities. Among those inquiries are many first-time fans who have never witnessed the experience of a race here.
First-time fans attending can stop by the information booth located outside the main frontstretch grandstand at Gate 4 and pick up a "First-Time Fan" info packet. The packets contain a fan guide, schedule, map and "First-Time Fan" souvenir magnet.
Fans can also tweet about their experiences by using #FTF16 and see what other fans are doing.
First-time fans can also take part in a driver Q&A session on Sunday, May 29 prior to the running of the Coca-Cola 600. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Kyle Larson will appear at the fan stage located in the Fan Zone from 2:45-3 p.m. on Sunday.
High Heel Dash Part of LiftMaster Pole Night: Fans attending LiftMaster Pole Night for Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 should arrive early for the MRO High Heel Dash at 7 p.m. The event has become an annual affair for Motor Racing Outreach and raises money for nonprofits including Speedway Children's Charities. The participants are wives and girlfriends of NASCAR team members. They'll race a 50-yard stretch of pit road in three-inch high heels.
Last year's champion, Wendy Venturini, will be back among the competitors to defend her title.
