NASCAR in North Carolina

After World War II, stock car racing evolved as a sport in the foothills and Piedmont of North Carolina. It quickly became one of the deepest traditions in North Carolina popular culture. Several world-class tracks stretch across the state and provide fans a chance to watch the legends of the sport every year.

North Carolina is the birthplace and home of many NASCAR legends, including Dale Garrett, Dale Earnhardt, and Richard Petty.
