CONCORD – Charlotte Motor Speedway has launched a new summer drive-in movie series.
The series will feature Wednesday night drive-in movies on the 16,000-square-foot Speedway TV in the infield of the 1.5-mile superspeedway.
It kicks off July 15 with the comedy “The Sandlot” and continues July 22 with “Ice Age: Continental Drift,” a 2012 animated comedy. Future films will be announced at a later date.
“Providing great, family-friendly entertainment is in our DNA, and with one of the largest HD screens in the world, drive-in movies are a logical fit,” General Manager Greg Walter said. “Drive-in movies are not only nostalgic and fun, but also a great way to practice proper social distancing when entertainment options are limited.”
Gates open at 5 p.m. Movies start at 7 p.m. Movie-goers will enter the infield at Gate 26 (under the Turn 3 tunnel) and be directed to parking in front of the 16,000-square-foot Speedway TV.
Restroom facilities will be available. Concessions will not be sold on-site.
Tickets cost $30 per car. Buy them through TicketMaster.
