hosts NASCAR racing
Charlotte Motor Speedway (formerly Lowe's Motor Speedway) is a motorsports complex located in Concord, North Carolina in the United States. The complex features a 1.5 miles (2.4 km) Quad-oval track that hosts NASCAR racing including the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend and the Sprint All-Star Race. The speedway was built in 1959 by Bruton Smith and is considered the home track for NASCAR with many race teams located in the Charlotte area. The track is owned and operated by Speedway Motorsports (SMI) with Marcus G. Smith (son of Bruton Smith) as track President and General Manager.
The facility is considered one of the busiest sports venues in the country. Along with many races, the speedway also hosts the Food Lion Auto Fair twice a year, one of the nation's largest car shows. Movies and commercials have been filmed at the speedway, notably Days of Thunder, and it is a popular tourist stop and car testing grounds.
On September 22, 2010, CMS announced a partnership with Panasonic to install the world's largest high definition video board at the track. The video board will measure approximately 200 feet wide by 80 feet tall, containing over 9 million LEDs and will be situated between turn 2 and 3 along the track's backstretch. The installation of the video board is under construction and expected to be complete by April 2011.
