Charlotte Motor Speedway History: From Granite to Gold
|Издательство:||The History Press|
Engines roared at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time in 1960, and the track has been home to some of NASCAR's greatest races and most honored drivers ever since. Despite early challenges, Bruton Smith and Humpy Wheeler took charge in 1975 and together sculpted one of the most famous racetracks in America as host of the Coca-Cola 600 and the Sprint All-Star race. In 1992, the track became the first modern superspeedway to host night racing, and thousands of race fans watched their favorite drivers swap paint under the North Carolina night sky. Get in the groove with racing journalist Deb Williams as she traces the history of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, with plenty of pit stops along the way.
