CONCORD, N.C. — Charlotte Motor Speedway has partnered with festival promoter Prime Social Group to produce an all-new concert series.

Artists will perform live on the speedway backstretch with the stage show broadcast on the track’s gigantic 16,000-square-foot TV, while fans remain socially distanced in their cars -– a similar setup used for the Avett Brothers concert at the speedway in August.

The first performance will feature pop artists Quinn XCII and Chelsea Cutler on Sept. 25.

Additional dates and performers will be announced at a later date.

Per current North Carolina regulations and Phase 2.5 restrictions, fans will be required to stay in their car, truck or SUV and wear proper face coverings when outside of their vehicle.

Venue staff will wear masks and enforce proper social distancing between cars.

Contactless ticketing will be used and concertgoers will be allowed to bring their own food and drinks to the shows. The music will be broadcast through an FM stereo frequency to encourage fans to stay in or on their vehicles.

Prime Social has also partnered with DOC Disinfectant to provide deep-cleaning services for restroom facilities, the stage and other high-traffic areas before and during the event.

Tickets will be sold per car, truck or SUV, with up to six people allowed per vehicle. Tickets start at $130 per vehicle and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.

Gates open at 6 p.m. and the show is scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m.
