Looks like the list from autoracingrecords.com, a list of every track in NC's history. Some are still active, some were kart tracks, and some just are memories with few details as to their location.

This "IS" a very unusual list of tracks. No mention of Nascar longest continuing running race track Bowman Gray stadium, right in downtown Winston-Salem, N.C. didn't make this list (?)

Not to mention several others that are out of operation.

You'll need to look for the old Chantilly Speedway site just outside of Weldon, rather than Roanoke Rapids as listed. No mention in the list of Cumberland International, the great asphalt track that hosted NASCAR events in Fayetteville where the dirt Fayetteville Motor Speedway now stands. Also see no Charlotte Motor Speedway, North Carolina Motor Speedway, North Wilkesboro, Wake County Speedway, Tarheel or Metrolina.

Wilson Fairgrounds and Wilson County Speedway on U.S. 301 in Wilson, NC are the same track.

Have to agree with Billy - it is a strange and incomplete list.

I noticed several tracks where the Roanoke Rapids/Weldon issue was apparent - Trico in Durham is just one example. That's the Trico in Rougemont that's now known as Orange County, I'm pretty sure. I think the trouble is that, back in the day when most tracks had no human presence on site other than for the races, the "address" was that of the promoter, which might be a good distance away. Also, sometimes the physical location might have been a community without a post office, which meant the postal address was different from the location as referred to by locals. There's a Roaring River in the list, and I remember seeing race results from that one that always identified it as being in the Shepherd's Crossing/Crossroads community (or something like that), but I'm guessing that wasn't its postal address.

This is a list of tracks I am missing locations for. It was originally AutoRacingRecords' list and I'm working to add GPS coordinates for all entries in their database.

Asheville-Weaverville - 35°44′25.37″N, 82°33′28.06″W - Demolished for North Buncombe High School

Took me two days of piecing together books and news articles and scouring archived aerial footage, but I found Harnett Speedway. The GPS coordinates are 35°14'23.0"N 78°54'19.2"W.

Jacksonville Speedway -34°45'49.9"N 77°19'57.7"W
