Gov. Bev Perdue will be raising money next week in the backyard of her presumed 2012 opponent, former Charlotte mayor Pat McCrory.

The campaign fundraiser is an infield party at Charlotte Motor Speedway next Thursday. It's "Bojangles' Pole Night," the qualifying runs for the Bank of America 500 NASCAR race on Saturday. 

For just $99, donors can nosh on a buffet and enjoy "VIP access" to the infield party.

But Bojangles' night notwithstanding, shorts and flip-flops won't be allowed. The invite specifies guests must wear closed-toe shoes, long pants, and no sleeveless shirts.
