    In May of 2000, a dirt track was added. The dirt track stadium can seat 14,000 fans. It hosts the Dirt Late Models, Modifields, Sprint Cars, Monster Trucks and The World of the Outlaws World Finals. Tracy Lawrence (a country music singer) had filmed his music video "If The Good Die Young" at the speedway. The speedway annually presents the nations two largest cars shows. It now has a state-of-the-art media center and a new drag strip. The ZMAX drag strip opened in 2008 to a sold out crowd of 30,000 people. Today, the Charlotte Motor Speedway still is to be the leading promoter and marketer of motor sports activities in the U.S.

It was designed by Danish architect, Jhon Utzon. It first opened in October of 1973. The first performance was "War and Peace" by Prokofiev. Each year, 2 million people visit the Opera House.

    The Great Barrier ReefBy: Paul Have you heard of the Great Barrier Reef? It is near 500,000 years old. The Great Barrier Reef stretches for more than 1,200 miles along Australia's northeastern coast and can be seen from outer space. Living coral keeps the reef together so it won't be worn away by the ocean. It is also home to two animals that are close to extinction, the "sea cow" and the giant green turtle. Here is a link that shows you what life is like in the Great Barrier Reef. Great Barrier Reef

    On June 19, 1960, the first World 600 took place on the new track. After Smith had built the speedway he pursued other businesses in Illinois and Texas. Smith had worked within Ford Motor Company and became really successful. In 1984, after building 40 condos, the speedway had became the only sport facility in America to offer year-round living accommodations.
    In May of 2000, a dirt track was added. The dirt track stadium can seat 14,000 fans.

    The Charlotte Motor Speedway is located in Concord, NC. It has a 1.5 mile long track and one of the largest seating capacities in the country. It can hold about 167,000 people in the grandstands and 50,000 people can set up on the infield to watch the race. Two of the biggest races take place here, the Coca-Cola 600 and the Bank of America 500.
    The speedway was designed and built in 1959 by former chairman O. Bruton Smith. Smith was a native of Oakboro, N.C. He was an automobile dealer and a stock car racing promoter at Concord Motor Speedway and the Charlotte Fairgrounds. Curtis Turner, Smith's business partner, was one of stock cars racing's earliest driving stars. Turner was from Virginia. He was one of the first drivers on the NASCAR circuit in 1949.

    Monon Trail
    by Kailey and Lily
    The Monon Trail is a trail that runs through down-town Carmel, Indiana and beyond. There are smaller branches off the Monon such as the Hagan Burke Trail. Lining the sides of the Monon are many stores and restaurants, also scattered throughout it are statues of people in action. The Monon is a place where you can walk, run, bike, etc.. We went to the Monon and took pictures of the beautiful scenery and people exercising in it. Then in our art class we made collages by cutting out colored paper and gluing to a picture of the Monon, and then we put them together to create one big picture.
