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.

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.
