Description

Food Lion AutoFair

Thursday, April 19 – Sunday, April 22, 2012 8:00am

The world’s largest automotive extravaganza returns to Charlotte Motor Speedway April 19-22, and promises to offer something for everyone.

Anyone with an interest in automotive history won’t want to miss the display honoring the oldest American car manufacturer, Buick, which will include a 1905 Model C that is believed to be one of the oldest Buicks still in existence today. In conjunction with the display, NASCAR great Bobby Allison, who twice drove a Buick to victory in the Daytona 500, will be on hand for an autograph session from 2 to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Those with an interest in rare cars should be sure to check out Tom Cotter’s 1952 Cunningham C-3 that will take center stage in the Barn Finds display. The Cunningham, one of only 25 such cars made by Le Mans legend Briggs Cunningham, was discovered in a South Carolina basement, where it had been stored for nearly 50 years.

The AutoFair also promises plenty of family fun, with a wide assortment of activities in the expanded Powerade Play Zone, an array of fair food and so much more.

The annual four-day show attracts thousands of automobiles and features collector car auctions, a flea market with more than 10,000 vendor spaces, a massive manufacturer midway, a car corral with more than 1,500 cars for sale, special exhibits, a kids’ zone, crazy fair foods and much more! Charlotte Motor Speedway is looking forward to partnering with Dealer Auctions, Inc to present the collector car auction to be held during the Food Lion AutoFair.

Single day adult tickets are only $10 at the gate and kids 13 & under get in free! Parking is only $5 for this event.
