In Honor of Charlotte Motor Speedway Being Named ``Outstanding Facility of the Year''

Congressman Richard Hudson
Congressional Record: 115th Congress
Extensions of Remarks
11 January 2017

HON. RICHARD HUDSON of North Carolina in the House of Representatives
Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Mr. HUDSON. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Charlotte Motor 
Speedway for being named the Race Track Business Conference's 
``Outstanding Facility of the Year.'' I am proud to represent Charlotte 
Motor Speedway in Congress, and I want to congratulate Marcus Smith and 
his entire team for making this premiere track such an incredible asset 
for our community.
  Built in 1959, Charlotte Motor Speedway has become one of the crown 
jewels of the racing community. Each year, the speedway plays host to 
three premier NASCAR events--the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, the Coca-
Cola 600, and the Bank of America 500--as well as more than three dozen 
other events for fans of all ages. The ``fans first'' mentality that 
has been embodied by the team since their earliest days has allowed 
them to create an atmosphere that is unrivaled in the motorsports 
  While the 1.5 mile long superspeedway may be the largest attraction, 
the entire Charlotte Motor Speedway complex expands nearly 2,000 acres 
and features a multitude of racing options including a 2.25 mile road 
course and the zMAX Dragway. The variety of racing options and top 
notch accommodations make any trip to the speedway a special occasion. 
It is no wonder the track continues to receive high praise from 
competitors and fans alike year after year. The efforts of all of those 
at the speedway have made it a truly special place both in motorsports 
and our local community. There is no doubt in my mind that Charlotte 
Motor Speedway will continue to provide a unique experience for 
everyone that visits, and it is my hope its leadership team will 
continue the innovative approach that has brought so much success to 
our community.
  Mr. Speaker, please join me today in congratulating Charlotte Motor 
Speedway on earning this impressive distinction and well-deserved honor 
as the ``Outstanding Facility of the Year.''
