"The Rock", the local name of The North Carolina Speedway, began as a dream of several local businessmen in the early 1960s. Today, the 1.017-mile superspeedway has become one of the most popular stops on the NASCAR Winston Cup Series and NASCAR Busch Series Grand National Division schedules. Located in the heart of stock car country, North Carolina Speedway is most noted for its fan-friendly atmosphere and Southern hospitality.
North Carolina Speedway opened October 31, 1965 and was rebuilt in 1969. The track is 1.017 miles (90 feet longer than 1 mile).
