Getting to the speedway
For fans coming from out of state, race officials recommend Interstate 85 exits 43, 46, 49 and 52 as primary routes to the track. From Interstate 77, use Exit 18 to reach U.S. 29.
However, officials urge Charlotte-area fans to use U.S. 49 and N.C. 29 to get to the speedway instead of taking I-85 to Bruton Smith Boulevard.
The Charlotte Area Transit System, the city of Concord and Charlotte Motor Speedway have partnered to bring race-day bus service from Charlotte to the track.
Starting from the Charlotte Transportation Center in uptown Charlotte, take the 79X Concord Mills Express to the Bank of America 500. Buses will run every 20 minutes from noon until 6 p.m. for the race Saturday night.
Return trips will begin immediately after the checkered flag and buses will be near the track’s main entrance. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased at the Charlotte Transportation Center at 310 E. Trade St. For more information, visit www.ridetransit.org or call 704-336-RIDE (7433).
