Gearheads Gather For Pennzoil AutoFair At Charlotte Motor Speedway

The Pennzoil AutoFair, presented by Advance Auto Parts, brings together family-friendly fun, high-speed classic cars, manufacturer displays and spectacular drifting exhibitions to America's Home for Racing.

One of the world’s largest automotive extravaganzas returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sept. 6-9, when the Pennzoil AutoFair, presented by Advance Auto Parts, brings together family-friendly fun, high-speed classic cars, manufacturer displays and spectacular drifting exhibitions to America’s Home for Racing.

Professional Formula D drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. will display some of his rides and sign autographs for fans throughout the weekend’s festivities,­ which also feature drifting exhibitions from E10 drift and a colorful salute to the historic Shelby Mustang. In addition, this year’s fall Pennzoil AutoFair will have a picturesque preview of the road course racing fans will see in the Sept. 28-30 Bank of America ROVAL 400 at Charlotte. Two GM Goodwrench-sponsored Chevrolet Corvette GTP road-racing cars owned by NASCAR Hall of Famer Rick Hendrick will headline the collection of adrenaline-pumping beasts strewn throughout the speedway’s infield.

Attendees also will witness car-crushing monster Jeeps and a Chevrolet ride-and-drive event. Back by popular demand is AutoFair’s popular burnout contest ­– a smoke-billowing showcase with no equal.

Kids can enjoy the speedway’s infield Play Zone, which will have face-painting, bounce houses and other games and entertainment to keep fans of all ages full of excitement.

The Pennzoil AutoFair presented by Advance Auto Parts features more than 50 car club displays and more than 10,000 vendor spaces offering an array of automotive parts and memorabilia. More than 1,500 collectible vehicles of all makes and models will be available for sale in the car corral that rings the 1.5-mile superspeedway.
