NASCAR visitors at the AutoFair

   This weekend's Food Lion Auto Fair at Charlotte Motor Speedway will have a NASCAR touch.

   NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Bobby Allison will be on hand Saturday. He’ll be signing autographs from 2 to 3 p.m. alongside a Buick he once drove on in the Cup series. The Buick will be part of a display paying tribute to one of America’s oldest auto manufacturers.

   Additionally, Chocolate Myers, a longtime member of the Richard Childress pit crew for the late Dale Earnhardt and current curator of Childress’ museum, will be on hand. He will sign autographs from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday next to the RCR display at the AutoFair, which will include two iconic No. 3 Chevrolets driven in the Cup series by Earnhardt.

   The AutoFair runs Thursday through Sunday. Single-day adult tickets are $10. Kids 13 and under get in free. For more information, visit www.charlottemotorspeedway.com.
