This Month’s Issue: NC Motorsports
When it comes to motorsports in North Carolina, most would think NASCAR, and rightfully so—stock car racing is our Official State Sport, with roots primarily in NC (we give a nod to an early dirt track in Taking a Lap Among the Pines). But another motorsport draws fans to arenas across the state, often billed as main events at county fairs: demolition derbies. Learn more about derbies, and meet a few drivers, in Crunch Time at the Demolition Derby. Also, don’t miss the first in our electric vehicle adventures series Charging Up Along the Coast.
Get behind the wheel at the NC State Fair for a bird’s eye view of this action-packed hobby.
Watch some Occoneechee Speedway highlights from 1951.
