Downtown Charlotte right up main street. I went to the 600 two years ago and got a bag full of neat giveaway stuff. Promo diecast, home depot cards, post cards etc etc. they have a stage set for drivers to come out and talk to the fans, several driver appearances. Be sure and check out to see when drivers are appearing and where. most will make an appearance at one place or another over the two week period. Also try and take the time to see some of the Race shops in the area. Penske, DEI, Hendricks, Moore, wood brothers, and RCR are all within driving distance. Just be prepared for some long lines at DEI and Hendricks. Some other sites worth taking in are Moorsville, Home of Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Jr., Sam Bass museum right by the track along with MA/ Action motorsports which is right by the track too. And for the haulers and tents. Easily as many there as at any other track on the circuit and since they will be there for two weeks some really good deals can be found on the last weekend. Have fun and hope you enjoy!!!!!
