Sports: SPEED STREET begins 

Thursday, May 22

Food Lion Speed Street Festival will kick off the race week with three days of entertainment, appearances and autographs from local and regional celebrities (including race car drivers!). In addition it offers food, exhibits, NASCAR show cars and simulators. This festival is sure to draw a crowd (it's free too!) so expect the streets of Charlotte to be packed. Three different stages will feature entertainment from top recording artists of various musical genres. Headliners include: Gary Allen, Jagged Edge, The Landsharks, Seether, Kellie Pickler, Kiss Army (A Tribute to Kiss), Chevelle, Travis Tritt and Maria Howell. And how about an autograph from one of your favorite NASCAR drivers? Kyle Petty, Matt Kenseth, Bobby Labonte, Richard Petty and others will be on hand to sign autographs. Pop the question during Q&A sessions that will feature drivers Dale Jarrett, Jeff Burton, Michael Waltrip, Elliot Sadler and more. Free. 11 a.m.-12 a.m. Uptown Charlotte. 704-455-5555.
