A motorsports facility boasting of being "America's Home for Racing," Charlotte Motor Speedway is a World-Class raceway complex hosting top-notch events regularly, like NASCAR Coca-Cola 600, NASCAR Bank of America Roval 400, and many other competitions attracting over 1 million spectators annually. The speedway was built in 1959 by NASCAR Hall-of- Famer Bruton Smith in Charlotte, North Carolina. In its present configuration, the motorsport complex consists of a quad-oval racetrack, an infield flat oval road course, a quarter-mile drag strip, and a clay oval for dirt racing competitions. Charlotte's moderate weather year-round allows having 100+ events annually in the speedway, with an average of 105 rainy days a year in four distinct seasons.
The main NASCAR 1.5-mile quad-oval track is banked in all its trajectory and forms the perimeter of the complex, with the grandstands right beside it. The banking in its turns is 24 degrees and in the straightaway is five degrees. Inside the quad-oval track, there's also a quarter-mile flat oval that combines with the outer raceway to form the Roval, Charlotte Motor Speedway's road course. The Roval is a 2.42-miler racetrack run counterclockwise traversing the banked quad-oval almost entirely, which deviates into the inner flat oval, creating a challenging trajectory where drivers should keep an eye in their rear-view mirror to try to keep competitors at bay.
The road-oval course in Charlotte Motor Speedway, commonly known as the Roval, is the 2.42-mile hybrid track formed by the outer NASCAR speedway with the inner flat oval road course. NASCAR competitions for the Monster Energy and Xfinity Series and the NASCAR Bank of America Roval 400 use this layout. The average speed for racing in the Roval is 94 mph, but velocities as high as 150 mph are entirely possible in the quad-oval segment. Heavy braking and downshifting occur in the two chicanes and T1, leading into the transition from the quad-oval to the inner flat oval.
