Acrobat Erendira Wallenda to hang from helicopter at CMS

Acrobat Erendira Wallenda - wife of world-famous stuntman Nik Wallenda - will be hanging out at Charlotte Motor Speedway next month.

Before the Oct. 9 running of the Bank of America 500, Wallenda will be suspended over the infield on an aerial ring attached to a helicopter ... and she won't have any safety equipment.

"I've watched Nik perform at Charlotte the last couple of years and always wanted to be part of the energy that fans bring to pre-race for the Bank of America 500," Erendira said. "We're always trying to top ourselves, and I'm really excited to come back to 'hang out' and put on a world-class performance at a world-class speedway."

"I'm so excited about this opportunity for her," Nik said. "Like the Pettys, the Earnhardts and other NASCAR royalty who have made racing a family tradition, performing is a Wallenda family tradition and this is what Erendira was born to do. I'm sure I'll be more nervous standing on the sidelines than I ever have been standing on the high wire, but I know she will put on an unforgettable show."
