Charlotte AutoFair — produced and presented by the Hornets Nest Region, AACA — is the largest and greatest Collector Vehicle Event in the Southeast held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
In the Spring, Charlotte AutoFair overflows outside the Speedway Infield to encompass the Green Flea Market and Red Flea Market Fields with more than 10,000 Vendor spaces.
The Car Corral on the main track oval includes more than 1,600 collector vehicles for sale. Also in the Spring, there is a Green Car Corral stretched out along the perimeter road at the base of the track – this area includes many more collector vehicles for sale. Some hobbyists sell collector vehicles on their Flea Market spaces. The result is that generally, possibly 3,000 collector vehicles can be expected to be for sale in the Spring.
The Hornets Nest Region, AACA presents an Antique Car Show, judged by Antique Automobile Club of America standards. The Spring AACA NATIONAL Car Show attracts approximately 350 vehicles for judging. The term “Antique” presently (2013) includes vehicles manufactured in 1988 or earlier, or twenty-five years old. All vehicles must be pre-registered.
In addition, there are more than fifty other car clubs, which present their vehicles for display on Saturday and Sunday at each event. All vehicles must be pre-registered.
The two Speedway Garage areas are reserved for special attractions and cars of special interest. Past attractions have included California Customs, many other wild and crazy vehicles, and beautiful concept show cars from Ford – General Motors – Chrysler.
