Memorial Day Weekend marks the official kickoff to summer and NASCAR fans the world over know there’s no better place to celebrate than America’s Home for Racing and the Coca-Cola 600. Continuing a recent tradition, Charlotte Motor Speedway, in collaboration with Cabarrus Brewing Company, will once again mark the momentous weekend with a limited release of their latest commemorative craft beer – 600 Salutes: A Race Day Classic.
The easy-drinking all-American wheat ale, brewed with North Carolina-grown barely and a touch of orange peel, offers a crisp and refreshing way to keep fans cool as the on-track action heats up throughout the entire Coca-Cola 600 race weekend. The keepsake one-pint cans, featuring a red, white and blue Uncle Sam raising a toast to summer, are a great way to memorialize a perfect weekend at the track.
Fans can find the 600 Salutes at concession stands throughout the property during race weekend or as a limited release at local retailers. In addition, 600 Salutes merchandise will be available at the speedway’s gift shop.
Tickets are still available for the May 26-28 Coca-Cola 600 weekend, with three-day packages starting at $99. Weekend tickets for children ages 12 and under are just $10. Fans can purchase tickets online at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com or by calling the ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267). Admission to Circle K Speed Street concerts by AC/DC tribute bank Dirty Deeds (Friday) and Jake Owen (Saturday) is free with any race ticket. Sunday’s pre-race concert by The Doobie Brothers is free with purchase of a Coca-Cola 600 race ticket.
