There is not a better way for a NASCAR fan than to kick off the summer season with one of the most prestigious races on the Sprint Cup schedule.
Thousands of fans will gather for the long holiday weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coca Cola 600.
It’s a chance to get together with family and enjoy a slice of Americana.
It’s hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill, bursts of speed and passes for the lead all wrapped into one.
This is the longest NASCAR race of the season at 600 miles and since its inception in 1960 it has seen its share of big-name winners.
Kasey Kahne will look to defend his title this year in front of 165,000 fans with many of those camping near the speedway during race week.
With that in mind here are several camping options if you are planning to attend the Coca Cola 600.
Enjoy the holiday weekend and the official kick-off to summer and yes – the race too!
