Charlotte named as one of the four cities in the running to host the 2014-2016 Summer X-Games. Other cities include Austin, Detroit, and Chicago.
ESPN officials will come to Charlotte on June 4th and 5th to survey Charlotte Motor Speedway and determine the potential of the CMS venue. Hosting the Summer X-Games would be ” a dream come true” say’s Chuck Powell of CBS Radio. Many local action sports enthusiasts of skateboarding, MotoX and BMX will simply be proud to see Charlotte host the X-Games. However; those who don’t watch the event can still share the same excitement because it is estimated that the local economy can benefit up to $50 million each year.
