American Flat Track is doubling up with NASCAR — the 2020 Charlotte Half-Mile doubleheader races will run Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10 on the same weekend as the NASCAR Cup Series Bank of America ROVAL 400. This three-day racing extravaganza will be the first time in history these two historic motorsports will run races in the same market, at the same venue, on the same weekend.
“American Flat Track and NASCAR are the two most American and most iconic of all motorsports so we are delighted to be partnering with the team at Charlotte Motor Speedway to bring race fans this unprecedented and unique weekend of two and four-wheeled racing," said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. “The Dirt Track at Charlotte is one of the favorite destinations for our teams and riders as the facilities are outstanding and the famous Charlotte red clay makes for high speed thrills all evening.”
“At Charlotte Motor Speedway, we pride ourselves on hosting world-class race events and bringing out the very best entertainment for the fans,” said Charlotte Motor Speedway Executive Vice President and General Manager Greg Walter. “With the addition of the back-to-back days of American Flat Track to an already action-packed Bank of America ROVAL 400 weekend, we’re looking forward to delivering on that promise in October and showing fans of both series why we’re known as America’s Home for Racing.”
