CONCORD - There will be fireworks both on and off the track this Tuesday at Week Four of the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In addition to highly competitive Legend Car and Bandolero racing on the frontstretch quarter-mile, fans will enjoy one of the first Fourth of July fireworks celebrations of the year in the area. The approximately 15-minute show will cap off the evening after the on-track excitement concludes.
Week Four marks the halfway point of the Jack in the Box Summer Shootout Series and will also include the Little Luggies 600, a Power Wheels race for children ages 4-7. Competitors will race their battery-powered vehicles down the frontstretch at Charlotte Motor Speedway at blistering speeds near 5 mph.
In addition, fans can enjoy an appearance and autographs by Red Bull Global Rallycross driver Steve Arpin.
Families are also welcome to come get a cool down from Charlotte Motor Speedway's fire truck, Engine 343, as it sprays water into the grandstands, as well as enjoy appearances by the World's Fastest Mascot, Lug Nut, and tons of family fun. The Charlotte Motor Speedway Play Zone will be open and will feature bounce houses, face painting and interactive games at the Charlotte Motor Speedway Fan Van.
Tickets for the Summer Shootout Series are $7 for adults, and are available in advance at the speedway ticket office or at Gates 4 and 5 the night of the event. Kids 13 and under get in free.
