The 2015 version of the annual NASCAR media tour hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway, wrapped up Thursday. The four days consist of regimented hours filled with visits from the many of the teams NASCAR fans will cheer for on Sunday during the NASCAR season that starts in just a few short weeks,
For over three decades journalists from all over the world have descended on Charlotte ready to get the season started. What used to be a relatively small group of newspaper reporters that traveled to most of the raceshop’s in and around the area has now grown to over 250 people representing all forms of media including the Internet, radio and TV.
