The first race held at North Carolina Speedway was back in 1965 as a joint venture between Darlington Raceway builder Harold Brasington and Bill Land, the land owner. Then, L.G. DeWitt took control of the track and in 1969 the racetrack became the 1.017 mile oval-shaped track that we know today. Nicknamed "The Rock" because of its Rockingham location, the speedway has 22|25 degree banking in the turns.
