Speedway Children's Charities is offering race fans the opportunity to participate in the Bank of America RacingTM NASCAR® Fantasy Camp at Lowe's Motor Speedway on Friday, Oct. 19.

Traditionally available only to select Bank of America guests, now 30 lucky winners will have the opportunity to drive an authentic Richard Petty Driving Experience race car and attend a private luncheon with a NASCAR personality.

Participants will drive eight laps around the legendary 1.5-mile superspeedway in a Richard Petty Driving Experience stock car at speeds up to 160 mph. Along with in-car instruction and safety training, guests will experience a closing ceremony and receive a certificate of completion, a printed time sheet and an autographed NASCAR® personality hero card. Guests will also receive a souvenir framed photograph, Bank of America RacingTM hat and access credential and lanyard.
