When the Sept. 20-23 Food Lion AutoFair kicks off at Charlotte Motor Speedway, attractions to entertain the whole family will include a squirrel on skis, movies on the big screen and the POWERADE Play Zone; and children 13 and under get in the gate for free.

The fall Food Lion AutoFair features more than 50 car club displays and more than 7,000 vendor spaces that offer a vast array of automotive parts and memorabilia. More than 1,500 collectible vehicles of all makes and models will be available for sale in the car corral that rings the 1.5-mile superspeedway. In addition, up to 200 cars will be auctioned by Dealer Auctions Inc.

This year’s marquee performer is Twiggy, a gray squirrel whose water-skiing act has created some of the most famous video clips in the world. For 27 years, millions of people have enjoyed Twiggy’s death-defying aquatic maneuvers in person, on the internet and on television programs such as “Good Morning America.” For the first time ever, AutoFair attendees can see the famous rodent jump wakes during several performances in Victory Circle on Friday (at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.) and Saturday (10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.).

Nothing says nostalgia like watching classic films outdoors on the world’s largest high-definition television screen, which is why the speedway is holding its first-ever AutoFair movie night. On Friday evening at 6:30 p.m., Charlotte Motor Speedway will fire up its 200x80-foot backstretch home theater and treat AutoFair attendees to “American Graffitti,” George Lucas’ hot rod-heavy coming-of-age film. Saturday evening at 6:30 p.m. will feature Steve McQueen and his 1968 Mustang fastback in “Bullitt.”

An AutoFair ticket stub is all it takes to get a seat in the grandstands and listen to the action through the track’s public address system or FM receiver.
