Huge news if you’re looking to see some Christmas lights tonight. While you can still take that scenic neighborhood drive, or venture through the McAdenville traffic, there is another free option to take advantage of. That’s right the Speedway Christmas Lights are free tonight, December 6th, for the first 250 cars in line. Charlotte Motor Speedway made the announcement this morning on its social media pages.
Normally it is $40 a car for admission. The event iss presented by Atrium Health and features four million LED Christmas lights strewn across a four-mile course. The course weaves through the infield, track, and concourse with displays and lights synchronized to Christmas-themed music. The show is open rain or shine. There’s also a storybook stroll and Christmas Village which includes:
- Photos with Santa presented by Cook Out
- Sea Life Selfie Station
- Santa’s Workshop
- Movie Theater

If you’ve been hesitant to check it out this is the perfect opportunity to do so. When else are you going get to experience Speedway Christmas for free?? Remember it’s just the first 250 cars, so get there early. The course opens at 6 pm but lining up a few minutes early would be beneficial!
