Carolina Speedway’s red-dirt track earns its stripes as stock cars skid atop its muddy surface, vying for position while their mighty engines roar out of exhilaration. Race nights feature drivers in a variety of racing classes––such as Late Model, Four Cylinder, and Renegade––putting the pedal to the metal in hopes of adding points under their name on the scoreboard. From the bleachers, fans get a bird’s-eye view of speed demons narrowly avoiding each other and heading into the straightaways. On certain race nights, fireworks fill the air after the last checkered flag has been waved. Carolina Speedway’s events are BYOB, and racing fans are invited to bring coolers of any size to sate their thirsts or store spare tires picked up after the race.
