Early Sunday morning, a street takeover occurred just outside the NASCAR Hall of Fame in uptown Charlotte.

Footage captured by a WBTV crew revealed the aftermath, with tire marks visible on the street and a crashed vehicle nearby. Witnesses reported observing cars burning out and individuals wearing ski masks flooding the streets. According to one witness, as many as nine cars were involved in the incident.
