Rockingham Speedway

Rockingham SpeedwayRockingham Speedway, formerly North Carolina Motor Speeedway and later North Carolina Speedway is a racetrack located near Rockingham, North Carolina. It is affectionately known as “The Rock”.

The track opened as a flat, one-mile oval on October 31, 1965. In 1969, the track was extensively reconfigured to a high-banked, D-shaped oval measuring slightly over one mile in length. The track surface is rather abrasive compared to other tracks, due to the high sand content of paving compounds made from local materials. The abrasiveness notoriously contributed to excessive tire wear. The characteristic is often cited as a demanding element of racing at the facility, necessitating strict management of tire wear.
