CONCORD – Chris Matthews drove more than two hours from his home in Laurens, S.C., to relish in the opening night’s festivities at Charlotte Motor Speedway’s 10th Speedway Christmas.
The event features 4 million Christmas lights through the 3.75-mile course.
“This is a lot of lights and it really is something to come out and see and enjoy with the family,” Matthews said.
The show runs through Jan. 5 but is closed Christmas Day. It includes a festive carousel, a 75-foot Christmas tree, photos with Santa and a series of holiday-themed FOX 46 Movie Nights on the giant, 16,000-foot Speedway TV from Thursday through Sunday of each week.
