The World's Largest Automotive Extravaganza
Concord, NC (Vocus) July 30, 2010
Racing has always been the first order of business for fans of the Charlotte Motor Speedway, but car enthusiasts from around the country will be driving to town this August to see a show of extraordinary proportions – one that will surely sell-out both the raceway and the neighboring Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord Golf Resort and Spa.
From August 26 to 29, 2010, the Food Lion AutoFair – billed as “The World's Largest Automotive Extravaganza” – returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway. The show annually attracts over 100,000 visitors, many of whom also come back to the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord to enjoy the hotel’s spacious, two-room suites, complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast, and nightly Manager’s Reception. They also fancy the onsite casual dining at Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord’s Rocky River Grille, golf at the Rocky River Golf Course, and the opportunity to relax at the full-service Spa Botanica.
But the major attraction for guests staying at the Embassy Suites Charlotte-Concord will be the Food Lion AutoFair, featuring more than 50 Car Clubs and over 10,000 vendor spaces offering an amazing variety of automotive parts and memorabilia. Visitors to the show will also have a chance to evaluate more than 1,500 collectible vehicles of all makes and models for sale in the car corral that rings the 1.5-mile Charlotte Motor Speedway. Plus, there will be a special Collector Car Auction.
On display for the first-time ever at this year’s event will be the world’s only collection of Vintage Carnival Bumper Cars licensed for the street. All nine of these street legal bumper cars have been transformed into mini hot rods with motorcycle engines, working headlights, turn signals and windshields.
