Today, what really keeps Charlotte moving as a popular tourist destination are race cars. The city is a major hub of the motorsports industry attracting many teams and organizations to move to Charlotte. The National Association of Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) holds many offices there, as well as the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Almost three-quarters of the people employed in NASCAR industries live in or near Charlotte. The Charlotte Motor Speedway, an 810 hectare motorsports complex has a 2.4 kilometer quad oval track that is considered the home track for NASCAR. It hosts prestigious NASCAR races like the Coca Cola 600 and the Sprint All-Star Race.

The National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) has constructed a dragstrip in the city that is luring top professional drag racers to move to Charlotte. The Charlotte Motor Speedway has also constructed a state-of-the-art 0.40 kilometer drag strip called the ZMAX Dragway. The only one of its kind in the USA, it is an all-concrete, 4-lane strip and hosts NHRA races. Alongside, a state-of-the-art clay oval track hosts dirt racing including the finals of the World of Outlaws Late Model series.
