North Carolina’s United Nation of NASCAR

Record #:
NASCAR has its roots in North Carolina, for it began with mountain moonshiners who rigged to cars fast enough to run from the law and turned into a race culture following the end of Prohibition. With the Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, and a number of older speedways throughout the western part of the state, North Carolina continues to cultivate the rich NASCAR culture.
