Cleveland County Speedway History

I am a graduate student at the University of Georgia working on a degree in Historic Preservation.  I am writing my thesis on historic NASCAR tracks in North Carolina.  I was doing some initial research on Cleveland County Speedway and I was wondering if anyone could give me some more information on this track, specifically, who the owners are and when racing was discontinued at this track.  Also, a look a google maps shows a smaller oval inside the larger oval.  I was wondering if the larger oval is the footprint of the 1/2 mile track or not.

Any information would be helpful.
