AFT to Join NASCAR Cup Series in Charlotte
AFT has filled in the details of its final TBA races for 2020 with confirmation that the 2020 Charlotte Half-Mile doubleheader races will run Friday, October 9 and Saturday, October 10, on the same weekend as the NASCAR Cup Series Bank of America ROVAL 400.
This three-day racing extravaganza will be the first time in history these two historic motorsports will run races in the same market, at the same venue, on the same weekend.
With over 60 years of racing history to its credit, Charlotte Motor Speedway (CMS) has become known as "America's Home for Racing." It will further solidify this title by hosting three back-to-back-to-back opportunities to witness high-speed motorsports action. On Friday and Saturday at CMS's The Dirt Track at Charlotte, the athletes in all three classes of American Flat Track will spend two nights vying for a spot in the AFT championship hunt. The weekend's action will culminate on Sunday with NASCAR's premier class, as its world-famous drivers attack the unique ROVAL 400 on the CMS road course.
Michael Lock, AFT CEO: "AFT and NASCAR are the two most American and most iconic of all motorsports, so we are delighted to be partnering with the team at Charlotte Motor Speedway to bring race fans this unprecedented and unique weekend of two and four-wheeled racing. The Dirt Track at Charlotte is one of the favorite destinations for our teams and riders as the facilities are outstanding and the famous Charlotte red clay makes for high speed thrills all evening."
