Family travels 9,500 miles to see race

CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte Motor Speedway officials say this year the track is hosting fans from all 50 states and 13 countries.

But Friday, we found a family that may have traveled the farthest. The Richards family came from South New Wales, Australia to see Sprint Cup driver Marcos Ambrose race in the Bank of America 500. Friday afternoon, the husband and wife and their 3 boys got a chance to meet the Richard Petty Motorsports driver.

And we also got to discuss some of the intricate differences between Australia and the South.
