The zMAX Dragway at the Charlotte Motor Speedway is the "Bellagio of Drag Strips," according to Speedway Motorsports CEO Bruton Smith. Opened in 2008 and the only 4-lane, all-concrete drag strip on the planet, this state-of-the-art facility includes two grandstand structures, one on each side of the quarter-mile track. Two pedestrian tunnels connect the grandstands underneath the strip to enhance fan mobility.

zMAX Dragway is home to NHRA Drag Racing and the Summer Drag and Brag street racing series. It has also hosted the popular "PINKS-All Out" TV series and the NMCA/NMRA Nationals. The Dragway hosts NHRA events, including the annual NHRA Carolinas Nationals, as well as many others. The NHRA Carolinas Nationals is the first playoff round of the NHRA POWERade Countdown to the Championship and features competition in all four professional categories - Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle.
