The 2,000-acre complex hosts NASCAR racing on a 1.5-mile quad-oval track, including big races such as the NASCAR All-Star Race, the Bank of America 500, and the prestigious Coca-Cola 600, which is held annually on Memorial Day. The speedway also boasts a state-of-the-art, quarter mile, all-concrete, four-lane drag-racing strip known as the zMAX Dragway, which hosts NHRA events. There is also a state-of-the-art, 1,300-foot, clay oval known as Dirt Track at Charlotte, which is a stadium-style facility with 14,000 seats that hosts various dirt races, including the World of Outlaws World Finals.
