Experience Speedway Christmas

December 15, 2017

With 3 million twinkling lights, Christmas Village and so much more, there is no holiday experience like Speedway Christmas!

The crew from Charlotte Motor Speedway recently took over the @VisitCabarrus Instagram giving you a look inside one of the most spectacular light shows in the Southeast. In case you missed it, check out this recap, and then plan your visit to see legendary Charlotte Motor Speedway all lit up. Whether you’re a first-timer or returning reveler, the 8th Annual Speedway Christmas is sure to make everyone in your family merry and bright.

Light Show

Start your engine and meander through the sparkling lights-to-music show. The 3.75-mile course now features an overlook that offers the perfect view and festive photo opportunity! Pull in and park the car between turns 3 and 4, then capture your memories and be sure to share the moment using #WhereRacingLives.

Christmas Village

After being mesmerized by three million lights, make a pit stop at the Christmas Village. Open Thursday through Sunday, it has everything from a living nativity to photos with Santa. While you’re there, don’t miss out on making s’mores, shopping goods from local vendors and enjoying the petting zoo.
