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.

The North Carolina quarter was printed in 2001 by the U.S. Mint and features the Wright Brother's famous first flight at Kitty Hawk.

The quarter features the date North Carolina signed the constitution, 1789. However, the States slogan is listed as "First Flight", while it is really "First in Flight".
