Speedway lights turned on tonight

Charlotte Motor Speedway will flick the switch this evening and turn on its Carolina Christmas light display for the first time.
The display, a 2.5-mile drive-through light park and village, has been constructed on the track and infield of the speedway. It is scheduled to open to the public at 6 p.m.
Carolina Christmas will feature 1 million lights; nearly 500 lighting displays; a live Nativity scene; carriage rides; and a chance to meet Santa. It will operate from 6 to 10 p.m. nightly from Monday through Jan. 2. Admission is $20 per car (up to eight occupants).
There will be additional charges for some activities, such as ice skating and horse-drawn carriage rides. The Nationwide Series garage has been turned into a skating rink, using an artificial material that is similar to ice.
The Sprint Cup Series garage is filled with nearly 50 trees, decorated by various local organizations.
Photos and other details are available at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com.

Im not a fan of christmas, but, do love the track. The fact you can drive on the track might be worth it to check out. Though apparently during their black friday sale, if you spend $50, you can take 3 laps around the track!
