The name comes after a Charlotte Motor Speedway viewing area which was created during granite explosions that raised the infield
CONCORD, N.C. (April 23, 2018) – Following last year’s historic rollout of 600 Ale, Charlotte Motor Speedway’s first craft beer, the speedway and Cabarrus Brewing Company turned things up a notch on Monday with the unveiling of Redneck Hill – a spectacular, smooth, American Ale.
The new craft beer is named for Redneck Hill, the raised spot in the speedway’s infield between turns 1 and 2 which in the 1960s became race fans’ prime spot for watching the race, partying and grilling. Country music legends Willie Nelson and Marty Robbins visited Redneck Hill, as did Pixar executives while they researched the movie that became “Cars.”
Redneck Hill’s history as an iconic part of Charlotte Motor Speedway lore enters a new chapter with the craft beer, which will be on sale for just $8 per 16-ounce souvenir can beginning at the NGK Spark Plugs NHRA Four-Wide Nationals this Friday-Sunday.
Redneck Hill will also be available at all major speedway events including the May 19 Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race, the May 25 Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Charlotte and the Coca-Cola 600 on May 27.
