It is May, and if you live in an apartment in Charlotte, NC you know what that means. May is NASCAR month in our city.
Each May, NASCAR takes the stage in Charlotte and all things involving speed and racing rule. The action takes place at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 19. This race is the best of the racers, and is 100 laps for $1 million. The All-Star Race regularly produces some of NASCAR’s most exciting moments.
Before the race, don’t miss the concert in the infield between turns 1 and 2. Blake Shelton, three-time GRAMMY nominee, CMA’s reigning Male Vocalist of the Year and a coach on NBC’s “The Voice,” will perform prior to the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race!
