Construction of this 1.5-mile racetrack began in 1959. A lighting system was installed in 1992, making it the first modern superspeedway to host night races. The track was repaved in 1994 and again before the 2006 season. The name of the track changed to Lowe's Motor Speedway in 1999 but changed back to Charlotte Motor Speedway for the 2010 season.
Charlotte has 24 degrees of banking in all of its turns as well as 5 degrees of banking on both the frontstretch and backstretch. The length of the frontstretch is 1,980 feet, and the backstretch measures 1,500 feet.
There have been 110 races in NASCAR's premier series held at Charlotte. The series has competed at this track twice each year since it opened in 1960. Charlotte will host the fifth round in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship -- a 500-mile event -- the second weekend in October.
Joe Lee Johnson won the inaugural Cup race at Charlotte, the World 600, on June 19, 1960.
Richard Petty holds the record for the most starts at Charlotte with 64. Jeff Gordon's 42 starts at this track is the most among those drivers entered in this weekend's race.
Bobby Allison, Jimmie Johnson and Darrell Waltrip share the record for most victories at Charlotte with six each. Johnson's most recent win at this track came in October 2009. He won four consecutive races there from May 2004 to October 2005.
Waltrip holds the record for most victories in the 600-mile race at Charlotte with five. He won it in 1978, '79, '85, '88 and '89.
Rick Hendrick has the most car owner wins at Charlotte with 17. Kasey Kahne gave Hendrick his most recent victory at this track two years ago.
David Pearson holds the record for most pole wins at Charlotte with 14. Ryan Newman and Gordon lead all active drivers with nine poles each there. Gordon's most recent pole at this track came last October.
The race winner at Charlotte has started from the pole 14 times. Johnson was the last driver to do it in October 2009.
Since NASCAR began using electronic timing and scoring in 1993, the closest margin of victory in a Sprint Cup race at Charlotte occurred on May 29, 2005 when Johnson beat Bobby Labonte to the finish line by just 0.027 seconds.
The 600-mile race at Charlotte in 2005 featured a NASCAR-record 22 cautions, mostly for accidents caused by blown tires. The event took 5 hours, 13 minutes and 52 seconds to complete and moved at a pace of 114.698 mph.
The furthest back a driver has started and won a Sprint Cup race at Charlotte is 37th, accomplished by Johnson in the 2003 rain-shortened 600-mile event.

Jamie McMurray's maiden win in the series came in the 500-mile event at Charlotte in October 2002. Labonte and Reutimann are not entered in this weekend's race.
Four drivers on the entry list for this race scored their first pole wins at Charlotte: Gordon (October 1993), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (May 2000), Newman (May 2001) and Aric Almirola (May 2012).
Two drivers entered made their Sprint Cup debuts in the 600-mile race at Charlotte: Earnhardt Jr. (1999) and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (2011). Johnson made his first Cup start at Charlotte in October 2001.
Gordon holds the record as the youngest driver to win a race at Charlotte. He took the checkered flag there on May 29, 1994 when he was 22 years, 9 months and 25 days old. When Cale Yarborough was 46 years, 6 months and 9 days old, he became the oldest driver to win at this track on Oct. 6, 1985.
