Join your TPI friends and colleagues for a fun and informative tour of some of NASCAR’s storied sites as we travel to Charlotte Motor Speedway for a ‘Feel the Thrill Speedway Tour’ where you will learn the history of the speedway going through the NASCAR speedway, the ZMAX dragway, the dirt track, and winner’s circle. Many photo opportunities will be available. Then we will travel to the headquarters of Hendrick Motorsports to see their museum and team store, showcasing the many years of Hendrick Motorsports history.
We will then head to an enjoyable sit-down lunch (included in tour pricing) before traveling to Bank of America Stadium, home of the NFL Carolina Panthers, for a tour with head groundskeeper Tom Vaughan. The natural turfgrass playing surface at Bank of America stadium is provided by TPI member Chad Price of Carolina Green Corp. We will arrive back at the Westin Charlotte in plenty of time to attend the First Time Attendee and President’s Receptions.
