The Sandhills region of the state, already famous for its Pinehurst-Southern Pines golfing complex, has recently added a new and profitable industry in Richmond County. The North Carolina Motor Speedway, a one-mile, high-banked, asphalt racetrack near Rockingham, is known in the racing world as the most modern facility in the sport. The track, which is accessible by automobile, rail, and even air, is estimated to bring in approximately $2 million dollars to the county annually, holding only two races per year.
