<strong>The Speedways</strong>

In the current economic downturn, there are empty spaces around the tracks.

Marcus Smith and his legendary father Bruton Smith run Speedway Motorsports Inc….one of the biggest operations in the sport. They own eight tracks around the country including Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC. Marcus Smith is always looking for ways to keep the seats and infield packed with fans.

Marcus Smith: "We’re the biggest entertainment destination for Joe and Jill America. I like to say that our fans are all about America. They come here and they’re lookin’ for a good deal. They’re part of the overall economy. They feel it. So, we’ve all got to be a low-cost provider."
