Connecting race fans to the Bank of America ROVAL™ 400

Both the motorsports industry and Bank of America have deep roots in North Carolina.

Bank of America has been the title sponsor of NASCAR’s Cup Series playoff race in Charlotte since 2006. Last year, the excitement of the first ROVAL™ 400 race brought more fans to the Speedway to see the new track. Since then, Speedway Motorsports has been hard at work making enhancements to ensure an even more impressive race this year. The 32 ft. wide track with 17 turns and chicane adjustments will play host to this year’s NASCAR Cup Series playoff on September 29.

“Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Smith family have transformed the city of Charlotte with the growth of the motorsports industry in this region,” Bank of America’s Charlotte Market President Charles Bowman said. “Charlotte Motor Speedway and its trailblazing ROVAL marked a new era of innovation when the track roared to life for the first time last year.”

What had been an oval course, the redesigned Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 features the first playoff road-course races in NASCAR history, as well as the longest race track in NASCAR.

“The Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 is all about excitement and creating memorable moments for our fans,” said Marcus Smith, the president and CEO of Speedway Motorsports, Inc. “Having our backstretch chicane upgraded will give drivers an additional opportunity to go for a season-making or season-breaking pass like we saw on the front stretch chicane last year. Every turn matters on the ROVAL™.”

The motorsports industry contributes $6 billion to the economy of North Carolina each year, according to the North Carolina Motorsports Association. Bank of America’s sponsorship of the race, as well as its relationship with Hendrick Motorsports, Speedway Motorsports, Charlotte Motor Speedway and the NASCAR Hall of Fame are examples of how together, we’re helping to drive our community forward.
