The Bank of America 500 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race that is hosted annually at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina, United States. The race is usually held in the month of October, and is 500 miles long. Prior to 1966, the race was a 400-mile event.
The 2002 race was also known for beginning a practice where, if a race broadcast on a network was running long and ran into prime-time hours, the broadcast would not switch to cable, as was the case in the past, and stayed with network television, a procedure which has since been retracted by ESPN.
