    There will be plenty of North Wilkesboros if NASCAR continues to die at the rate it is.

    i live in Lenoir nc and it really is a shame to see it wasting away and I hear that people still go there and sit down and remember all the good times at that track and some people still race like Hondas, chevys, fords, and a lot of other cars like that like this and give some love to the track it needs it badly.

    One of the original tracks in nascar. Been closed probably 20 years. They did reopen it about 10 years ago with a nascar sanctioned truck race. But closed again soon after it. Thks for sharing it. Been following nascar since the 80's. Tracks are so much more modern now

    You're lucky that you got out of the hotel alive. It's a known fact that people live in those places and are very protective of their property. Be extremely careful and arm yourselves if intend to continue going into places like this.

    I remember my parents talking about going to races and watching them at this track. With West Virginia getting a PGA Tour even at the Greenbrier, drawing in a few more large-scale events would definitely be good for the state.

    These kids probably think it's 'cool'. But to me it's sad...

    ...and a sad statement on NASCAR for what it has allowed to happen to some of the great tracks of the past.

    Why are millennials so self absorbed to think we want to constantly see their mugs on camera? Urg! JMO...why not do POV from behind the camera? It looks more inviting. Just a thought.

      +Spider Watson lol the reason people watch Youtuber's is because people want to see them and their personalities. Check out normal TV or some other website if you don't want to see people's faces, because that's what you'll get on YouTube, and it's not just millennials.

    i dont get it why they dont use concrete elements to build the track..they can be locked together and tarmac ontop.. it would last for decades without cracking the surface.

    Ahhh yes North Wilkesboro. Jeez, look at it now. So sad the way it looks compared to back then. Hosted some of the greatest NASCAR driver's like Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt Sr, & Jeff Gordon. I wonder if Rockingham, North Carolina suffered the same fate.

  • Hazy Sativa
    Hazy Sativa 25 days ago +2

    This is what happened to NASCAR, and why its dying.. It turned its back on the history in favor of 1.5 mile cookie cutter tracks and cars that look nothing like what you see on the showroom.
    Jr Johnson grew up around here, and was one of the many who made this track a holy grail of racing. Sad to see it fall to its demise. I always thought it would be brought back as a Dirt facility...

    Bruton SMITH IS THE DOWNFALL OF NASCAR as we knew it! This asshole had enough money, so the tracks he wanted to close, he bought and closed them. Turd is not a NASCAR fan, he's in it for the money!

    Did you guys run into the old guy Paul there that lives in the house next to the track and keeps an eye on the place? Me and some friends stopped there literally within a few days of you and he was not very friendly at all and basically kicked us out of the place after just looking at it from the outside for 5 minutes.

    As a NASCAR fan for a long time North Wilkesboro Speedway is a historic track that just ran out of nostalgia and funds in the mid 90's. Was a staple of regional NASCAR in the south for many years. cool finds.

    That's North Wilkesboro Speedway. It was a track that NASCAR races at in the 1970s and 80s, and was a favorite among fans. NASCAR stopped going there due to lack of track funding, which eventually led to the fate of the track altogether.

      Yeah, a lot of fans are saying that these days. I suppose it's somewhat understandable (and confessionally I thought you were just a troll when I saw that above, sorry about that....). Personally I'm willing to keep watching it just because of how good the racing is assuming they aren't at a cookie cutter track, but lately my allegiances have switched to Indycar funnily enough.

      FDNYEMS55 Spelt it correct.
      North Wilkesboro Speedway. It's sad to see the shape it's in these days. It closed in 2011. Last NASCAR race was in 1996 (won by Jeff Gordon). It was not the prettiest place, but it hosted some of NASCAR's greatest drivers. Petty, Earnhardt, Wallce, Waltrip, Junior Johnson, the Allisons, and so many more. There was a concerted effort to save it and re-open it full-time but it was too worn out and too expensive to be done. Such a shame to see it wasting away.

    The Milwaukee Mile could maybe be abandoned. I don't know yet because none of the races are doing it here, it's just used for driving training and they may leave it abandoned or tear it down.

    Hey guys. Love your video. I'm a native of the area you filmed the track in. The NASCAR race First Union 400 used to run there. The track was closed when NASCAR decided to go for newer, bigger tracks (Like Las Vegas and Texas).

    Politics are crazy with this particular track and why it is in such bad shape, but it's not completely abandoned. Some NASCAR teams will test there (because they are forbidden to test on official tracks unless they are testing new tires).

  • Federated Auto Parts Cup Series

    North Wilkesboro was one of NASCAR's first track it held its first race on October 16th 1949 and held its last one on September 29th 1996 and closed that same year but reopened in 2010 to have some lower class races but closed in 2011 as of now there are no races there anymore and theres only 1 employee the groundskeeper who takes care of the track its a shame to see this track decay and rot away its a beautiful track and we can all blame Bruton Smith and Brian France for closing the track i hope someday North Wilkesboro has more NASCAR races and also i love the view from the drones
