It's a big weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway! Adding to the excitement, fans will be treated to a lot of extra entertainment, from death-defying pre-race stunts to grassroots racing on the front stretch quarter-mile and a firefighting skills competition.

Friday night during the Circle K NOS Energy Outlaw Showdown at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, fans will witness two amazing high-flying stunts. Dr. Danger (aka Gregory Carpenter) will kick off the show by jumping cars into a 10-car pyramid before Mr. Dizzy (aka Mike Buse) attempts an aerial corkscrew in a limousine. This has never been before---anywhere.

Mike Buse brought that specially-equipped limo to the station this morning.  "Mr. Dizzy" was our guest on Larry's Look.  He talked about some of the incredible stunts he's done over the years---Motor home jumping, jump of doom(car towing a boat), bus jumping, a World Record limo jump, and a fan favorite: the "wall of fire"!
