Could the News at Charlotte Motor Speedway Threaten the NASCAR Playoff Race?

Charlotte Motor Speedway is an iconic track for the NASCAR Cup Series. Not only because it’s the longest track in NASCAR, with 400 laps around the 600-mile track but also because the Coca-Cola 600 is one of four crown jewel races, including the Daytona 500, the Brickyard 400, and the Southern 500.

However, there is some bad news about the iconic track.
