Overview


Located in the Sandhills region of North Carolina, Rockingham Speedway opened in 1965. The legendary Curtis Turner made his return to NASCAR® with a victory in the track's inaugural event in 1965, while local favorite Benny Parsons clinched the 1973 championship here. A 1994 victory at Rockingham clinched that year's NASCAR championship for Dale Earnhardt. It was his seventh title, tying Earnhardt with Richard Petty for most in the sport's history. The facility formerly known as North Carolina Motor Speedway and respectfully nicknamed "The Rock" experienced a rebirth under the direction of new owner Andy Hillenburg. Rockingham Speedway showcases the rich NASCAR history of this North Carolina track.
