Driving 101, NASCAR Racing Experience and Charlotte Sports Foundation to Hold Annual Ride-Along Event for Players, Coaches and Team Members at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Monday, December 27, 2021

CHARLOTTE – Before the University of North Carolina and University of South Carolina football teams take to the field for the December 30 Duke’s Mayo Bowl, the players, coaches and team members will have an opportunity to turn some laps at Charlotte Motor Speedway, courtesy of Driving 101, which operates the NASCAR Racing Experience.

Every year, the NASCAR Racing Experience, in conjunction with the Charlotte Sports Foundation, plays host to the teams competing in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl. Team members have a chance to check out the race cars and ride along for high-speed laps around the 1.5 mile oval with the NASCAR Racing Experience professional drivers.

This year, the event will be held on Monday, December 27, at 10 a.m.

“We’re thrilled to have both UNC and USC come out to enjoy the NASCAR Racing Experience before the big game,” said Kurt Weinhardt, chief revenue officer for Driving 101. “Both of these teams are based in NASCAR country, so it’s great way for the race fans on the teams – and those new to the sport — to participate in a bucket-list experience. We wish them both well in the upcoming Duke’s Bowl Game!”
