Abstract:
There were once twenty-nine speedways in North Carolina. Each held one Grand National event, and drivers like Richard Petty and Ned Jarrett raced on them. Today the tracks are closed, victims of mega-track building. Wood remembers the glory days of these tracks in his book, SILENT SPEEDWAYS OF THE CAROLINAS. CAROLINA COUNTRY presents excerpts from the book, including the preface and the chapter on Tar Heel Speedway of Randleman in Randolph County.
