The History of Motorsports in North Carolina

North Carolina has been a hub for motorsports for over a century. From the Moonshine runners of the 1920s to today’s modern facilities, North Carolina has been at the forefront of racing innovation and excellence. The North Carolina Motorsports Association is proud to celebrate this history and promote the future of motorsports in our state.

In North Carolina, you’ll find there’s so much to experience both on and off the track. Build a full itinerary thanks to the new Moonshine and Motorsports Trail developed by the NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Begin and end the trail in North Wilkesboro to form your own speedway oval (and download the PDF of that itinerary here), or extend your route to the coast – whatever shape your trail takes, you can load it up with NC flavor.
