On a humid Tuesday afternoon earlier this week, spectators lined the fence of GoPro Motorplex in Mooresville, NC.
With die-cast cars in hand, these fans hoped to catch a glimpse of their favorite drivers. Fans and drivers alike were at the complex for The Little 600; a free race for spectators during Charlotte Speedweeks to see their drivers battle it out against each other for the Little 600 Trophy.

The day’s festivities were quite exciting as fans were able to watch the drivers work on their karts for the heat races and the final race. There was also a bonus race among NASCAR spotters that included Kevin Hamlin (Kasey Kahne) and Tyler Green (Aric Almirola).
The rain moved in toward the end of the event, but not before Danica Patrick made a surprise visit to wave the green flag for the feature which included her boyfriend and fellow NASCAR driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. The drivers’ aggressive driving put on a heck of a show with Ryan Blaney taking home the top prize.
