NASCAR Family Fun
NASCAR is one of the most viewed professional sports on TV – second only to the NFL. With fun, several-day events and over 75 million fans, we pulled together a few ways to get the whole family involved.
CharlotteLike many others, Charlotte Motor Speedway features the Richard Petty Driving Experience, which lets you ride shotgun for 3 high-speed laps or get behind the wheel yourself to feel the thrill of 600 horsepower. Nearby Mooresville, nicknamed “Race City USA,” is home to 2 museums, gift shops and the Auto Racing Hall of Fame.
Daytona BeachDaytona is a great beach town and home to the Daytona International Speedway and the Daytona 500. The track offers an expanded speedway tour that stops by Victory Lane and the Spring Cup Series garage. There’s plenty to keep all ages occupied, and it’s just an hour from Orlando, so a quick trip to Disney World could be on the itinerary.
Not near a track?The NASCAR Speedpark has locations in Myrtle Beach, SC; Smoky Mountains; St. Louis, MO; Concord, NC; and Vaughan, Ontario. The rides and go-kart tracks will keep the whole family happy.
