"Nascar" North Carolina Local Custom Tip by MandaJ320

North Carolina Local Customs: 39 reviews and 32 photos

Nascar is a HUGE thing in North Carolina, especially in race towns like Kannapolis (home of the late Dale Earnhardt), Mooresville (home to many race teams), and Concord (home of the Lowe's Motor Speedway.) There are two major speedways in North Carolina, Lowe's Motor Speedway, and Rockingham. So you'll find a LOT of fans here. And don't be surprised if you run into a race car driver here. Most of them live around the Charlotte area. (I've seen two myself that I know of!) And don't be misguided that Nascar is a redneck sport. This is not true! Sure, a lot of rednecks like racing, but this sport is growing, and along with that, it's picking up a wide variety of fans.
