Known for its illustrious history of innovation, Charlotte Motor Speedway will usher in a thrilling new era of motorsports excitement this October.

Speedway officials announced on Sunday a reconfiguration of the 17-turn, 2.28-mile ROVAL™, which will provide additional passing opportunities for drivers and force a competitive re-think of what it‘ll take for teams to conquer the Bank of America ROVAL™ 400.

Included in the reconfiguration, crews will extend the straight-away coming out of Turn 5 and create a new Turn 6, sending the field toward a much sharper hairpin in Turn 7. On the frontstretch, a sharper apex in Turn 16 of the final chicane will be created.

The circuit will still feature 17 total turns and a length of approximately 2.28 miles with 35 feet of elevation change.

Fans will get their first glimpse of the all-new ROVAL™ during the pivotal NASCAR Playoffs Bank of America ROVAL™ 400 weekend when both the NASCAR Xfinity Series and Cup Series take the track in crucial cutoff events, with drivers battling to secure a spot in the Round of 8.
