Charlotte Motor Speedway, formerly Lowe's Motor Speedway, is a motorsports complex located in Concord, North Carolina 13 mi (21 km) from Charlotte. The complex features a 1.5 mi (2.4 km) quad oval track that hosts NASCAR racing including the prestigious Coca-Cola 600 on Memorial Day weekend, the NASCAR All-Star Race, and the Bank of America Roval 400. 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, Inc. (SMI) with Marcus G. Smith (son of Bruton Smith) as track president.
The 2,000 acres (810 ha) complex also features a state-of-the-art quarter mile (0.40 km) drag racing strip, ZMAX Dragway. It is the only all-concrete, four-lane drag strip in the United States and hosts NHRA events. Alongside the drag strip is a state-of-the-art clay oval that hosts dirt racing including the World of Outlaws finals among other popular racing events.

After this weekend, teams will be allowed to carry over the qualifying tires through the rest of the weekend. Previously, that was the rule just for superspeedways and 2-day weekends.

This is new and I would think it is because with the increased number of impound weekends, would be stupid to just run two laps on those tires and not use them again for practice as you could when qualifying Friday and then practice Saturday.

Will be putting up 18, 42, 1, 14, 41, 88, 13 and 37. Wondering if some drivers will show well again or not. Such a long race I hope to have some that will make the long run consistently well.
Wow u totally reminded me when Danica was whining over the radio “we aren’t at 400 yet? Man the race is long”

I know someone can find the sound bite

Thinking if one’s picks running top 10 in the beginning........they will not be late in race.
