Go-karts will rumble, fur will fly and fans will roar when Mascot Mania commences during Tuesday night’s Bojangles’ Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Between Legend Car and Bandolero battles on Charlotte’s frontstretch quarter-mile, a slew of prominent area sports mascots will take center stage for a go-kart race to decide which mascot can most successfully operate a go-kart with the world’s eyes fixated on their every turn, spin and bump.
Lug Nut, the world’s fastest mascot, will tangle with an all-star cast of mascots on the same night as motorsports’ rising stars converge on America’s Home for Racing for feature races in seven divisions: the Cabarrus Brewing Company Masters; Legend Car Pro; K1 Speed Young Lions; VP Racing Fuels Semi-Pro; Charter Schools USA Bandolero Outlaws; Bandolero Bandits and Bandolero Beginner Bandits.
Before the green flag is unfurled, here’s a look at the field for Tuesday’s can’t-miss mascot mash-up:
- Lug Nut – Charlotte Motor Speedway
- Hugo the Hornet – Charlotte Hornets
- Chubby – Charlotte Checkers
- Blue – Charlotte Hounds
