I\'ve driven the track since 1990 and have^Jnever seen anyone hit the wall here.  LMS holds a special place in my^Jheart because it was the very first place I did a driving school and^Jthat got me hooked.  The banking is 24 degrees and forces some serious^JG-loading on your car, tires and body.  Because the high banks are^Jonly a quarter of a mile long, it is a real rush.  The infield portion^Jis fairly grippy and it does have some runoff room if you make a^Jmistake.

The infield stays fairly consistent throughout^Jthe weekend.  Considering it doesn\'t get a whole lot of use except^Jwhen the road racers show up, it can actually improve as more rubber^Jgets laid down.  It\'s an easy track to learn and fairly easy to master^Jas well.  It\'s also a good idea to use THINNER tires than you normally^Jwould, especially on the front.  This is due to the ultra-high speeds^Jand rolling resistance (air and friction) of wider tires.  If you^Jnormally run 315s on the front, try using the 275s.  Also, because of^Jthe banking and extreme loads exerted on the tires, try increasing the^Jpressure a few pounds to keep the side walls from flexing too much.^J</p>^J<p>^JAll shift points and approximate speeds are relative to my T1 prepared^J2001 Corvette Z06.^J</p>^J<p>^JLeaving the pits, stay to the left as cars will be coming off the^JNASCAR portion on to the infield.  There is no real \'merge\' area so^Jcheck your mirrors carefully.  As you accelerate past turn 2, you^Jshould be on the left side of the track approaching 3, which is a 60^Jdegree right-hand turn with a dip at the apex.  Once past the apex,^Jstraighten the wheel out quickly to get maximum braking.  Get as far^Jto the left as possible for the 110 degree right hand turn 4.  It\'s^Jtight and banked so nail that apex.^J</p>^J<p>^JAfter exiting 4, you\'ll now go down the short infield straight.  You^Jcan either shift to 4th or just stay in 3d and run the rpms up.  Check^Jyour mirrors and gauges.  Turn 5 is a very fast right-hand kink.  You^Jcan apex this corner earlier than you think because the exit of the^Jcorner is uphill and the \'banking\' helps you.  It also helps you^Jbrake so you\'ll find you can go thru the corner much faster than you^Jthought.  Track out wide and heel-toe downshift to 3d (if you went to^J4th on the small straight) to get set up for the trickiest corner on^Jthe infield.^J</p>^J<p>^JTurn 6 is a long, over-the-hilltop, right hand turn, not quite off^Jcamber and not quite blind, but it\'s still an unusual corner.  It\'s^Jeasy to spin the wheels and get loose here so just be smooth and get^Jback to the right as soon as possible.^J</p>^J<p>^JAs you come over and down the hill to get set up for turn 7, there is^Jactually a little bit of banking in the corner at the start which will^Jhelp the car turn.^J</p>^J<p>^JThis corner is one of the most important corners on the track because^Jit leads to one of the longest straight-aways.  Don\'t get too^Jconcerned about any of the apexes except the very last one that^Jactually leads onto the banking.  Ensure you use the entire track for^Jthe entrance of the corner though -- go as wide as possible before^Jturning for the apex.  You really want make this last corner as late^Jof an apex as possible-never early.  There is a severe transition^Jfrom the infield course to the banking.  If you early apex and hit the^Jbanking squarely, you can break suspension components and actually^Jcrack your windshield!  Try to make the transition from the infield to^Jthe banking as smooth as possible.  Stay low on the banking until the^Jstraight then move up toward the wall.^J</p>^J<p>^JShift to 4th, check your gauges and relax.  Again, you can either stay^Jin 4th down this long straight or shift to 5th.^J</p>^J<p>^JThe NASCAR banking is really tight-only 1/4 mile long and 24 degrees^Jso the G forces really work on your body.  You may want to think about^Jmoving your seat closer to the steering wheel to keep these forces at^Ja minimum.  Another useful driving tip is to remember to pull the^Jsteering wheel -- don\'t push it.  When you pull the wheel, you\'ll^Juse the big muscles in your side and arm as opposed to pushing it^Jwhich uses much smaller muscles in your forearm and shoulders.  Bigger^Jmuscles will get less tired over the session/day so you\'ll think^Jclearer!  Keep you head and eyes way up!!!!!^J</p>^J<p>^JI enter the banking about 3/4 of the way up and gradually bring the car^Jlower down the track until the exit.  Remember to power thru the^Jbanking -- it keeps the suspension loaded and glued to the track.^J</p>^J<p>^JAs you exit the banking look way up and aim a straight line to the^Jbraking point.  You should try to be as straight (parallel to the^Jwall) as possible when you hit your braking point.  Be conservative at^Jfirst and slowly move your braking zone closer to the turn-in point.^JYou\'ll most likely be doing 150+ mph.  Don\'t be a hero here though if^Jyou can\'t get the car slowed down enough.  If you don\'t think you can^Jmake the turn, just keep braking straight, punt a few cones and use^Jthat runoffs space (actual NASCAR track) to slow the car.  Heel-toe^Jdownshift to 3d gear.^J</p>^J<p>^JTurn 1 is wide, fast and bumpy.  It\'s imperative you be under power^Jcoming through the turn.  Use a conservative (late) turn-in and nail^Jthat apex.  Track out as far to the wall as possible.  You can^Jexperiment with earlier turn-ins until you get uncomfortable with your^Jtrack-out spacing to the wall.  You can also look for smoother lines^Jthru there.  Either way, ensure you\'re close to the wall for the turn^Jin for 2.  The more room you have on entrance means the straighter^J(and faster) turn 2 will be.  It\'s only about a 45-degree turn with a^Jbit of banking so you can rocket thru here much faster than it^Jappears.  Late apex it though and bring the car back to the left to^Jget set up for 3.^J</p>^J<p>^JCharlotte is a big-time horsepower and guts track.  Keep your head and^Jeyes up to minimize the sensation of speed and to give yourself more^Jreaction time.  Enjoy!^J</p>^J<p>^JChris W.

Don\'t be a hero here though if^Jyou can\'t get the car slowed down enough.

Track out as far to the wall as possible.  You can^Jexperiment with earlier turn-ins until you get uncomfortable with your^Jtrack-out spacing to the wall.  You can also look for smoother lines^Jthru there.  Either way, ensure you\'re close to the wall for the turn^Jin for 2.  The more room you have on entrance means the straighter^J(and faster) turn 2 will be.  It\'s only about a 45-degree turn with a^Jbit of banking so you can rocket thru here much faster than it^Jappears.

I\'ve driven the track since 1990 and have^Jnever seen anyone hit the wall here.  LMS holds a special place in my^Jheart because it was the very first place I did a driving school and^Jthat got me hooked.  The banking is 24 degrees and forces some serious^JG-loading on your car, tires and body.  Because the high banks are^Jonly a quarter of a mile long, it is a real rush.  The infield portion^Jis fairly grippy and it does have some runoff room if you make a^Jmistake.  This is without a doubt, one of the fastest top speed tracks^Jin the southeast and will test your bravery as you enter the bankings^Jat well over 140 mph.^J</p>^J<p>^JThe amenities of LMS are what you\'d expect from a track that hosts^Jsome of the best racing in motor sports -- professional garages,^Jlarge paved paddock area, permanent admin buildings, great^Jviewing/vantage spots, etc.)^J</p>^J<p>^JOverall, LMS uses nearly 3/4 of the whole oval and adds a simple,^Jinfield section with a few twists and elevation changes to connect the^Jtwo major bankings.^J</p>^J<p>^JIt helps to have a neutral to slightly loose (oversteering) car here.^JA car that understeers severely will find it very hard to go thru the^Jhigh banks quickly.  The infield stays fairly consistent throughout^Jthe weekend.  Considering it doesn\'t get a whole lot of use except^Jwhen the road racers show up, it can actually improve as more rubber^Jgets laid down.  It\'s an easy track to learn and fairly easy to master^Jas well.  It\'s also a good idea to use THINNER tires than you normally^Jwould, especially on the front.  This is due to the ultra-high speeds^Jand rolling resistance (air and friction) of wider tires.  If you^Jnormally run 315s on the front, try using the 275s.  Also, because of^Jthe banking and extreme loads exerted on the tires, try increasing the^Jpressure a few pounds to keep the side walls from flexing too much.^J</p>^J<p>^JAll shift points and approximate speeds are relative to my T1 prepared^J2001 Corvette Z06.^J</p>^J<p>^JLeaving the pits, stay to the left as cars will be coming off the^JNASCAR portion on to the infield.  There is no real \'merge\' area so^Jcheck your mirrors carefully.  As you accelerate past turn 2, you^Jshould be on the left side of the track approaching 3, which is a 60^Jdegree right-hand turn with a dip at the apex.  Once past the apex,^Jstraighten the wheel out quickly to get maximum braking.  Get as far^Jto the left as possible for the 110 degree right hand turn 4.  It\'s^Jtight and banked so nail that apex.^J</p>^J<p>^JAfter exiting 4, you\'ll now go down the short infield straight.  You^Jcan either shift to 4th or just stay in 3d and run the rpms up.  Check^Jyour mirrors and gauges.  Turn 5 is a very fast right-hand kink.  You^Jcan apex this corner earlier than you think because the exit of the^Jcorner is uphill and the \'banking\' helps you.  It also helps you^Jbrake so you\'ll find you can go thru the corner much faster than you^Jthought.  Track out wide and heel-toe downshift to 3d (if you went to^J4th on the small straight) to get set up for the trickiest corner on^Jthe infield.^J</p>^J<p>^JTurn 6 is a long, over-the-hilltop, right hand turn, not quite off^Jcamber and not quite blind, but it\'s still an unusual corner.  It\'s^Jeasy to spin the wheels and get loose here so just be smooth and get^Jback to the right as soon as possible.^J</p>^J<p>^JAs you come over and down the hill to get set up for turn 7, there is^Jactually a little bit of banking in the corner at the start which will^Jhelp the car turn.^J</p>^J<p>^JThis corner is one of the most important corners on the track because^Jit leads to one of the longest straight-aways.  Don\'t get too^Jconcerned about any of the apexes except the very last one that^Jactually leads onto the banking.  Ensure you use the entire track for^Jthe entrance of the corner though -- go as wide as possible before^Jturning for the apex.  You really want make this last corner as late^Jof an apex as possible-never early.  There is a severe transition^Jfrom the infield course to the banking.  If you early apex and hit the^Jbanking squarely, you can break suspension components and actually^Jcrack your windshield!  Try to make the transition from the infield to^Jthe banking as smooth as possible.
