CHARLOTTE, N. C. –  Before the big Coca Cola 600  race on Sunday, NASCAR fans can enjoy a lot of family fun and music in Uptown Charlotte at this year’s Circle K and Kangaroo Speed Street presented by Coca-Cola.  Wilson was in Uptown today to give us preview of everything that will be going on during the 3 days of fun.

Speed Street kicks off at noon today and runs from noon until midnight each day thru Satuday, May 24th.  Attendees can enjoy plenty of food, live music and fun while meeting some of their favorite NASCAR drivers.  From the Family Stage with kid friendly events to  free make-up tips from Revlon pop-up shop there will be something for everyone in the family.   Ford has an area where their new cars can be checked out and adults can even take a test drive.  They even let Wilson take a lap around Tryon Street.

Appetite for Destruction, The Ultimate Guns & Roses Experience  gave Wilson a preview of the show that they will be performing tonight on the Coca Cola stage at 8:30pm.
