Charlotte, North Carolina, is the virtual epicenter of NASCAR, with several of today's top teams setting up shop in the immediate vicinity. Charlotte Motor Speedway, however, has a rich NASCAR heritage that dates back four decades. This photographic retrospective follows the history of NASCAR at the speedway, as the sport grows from a regional attraction to a national obsession, and the cars evolve from factory-stock automobiles to hand-built racers. Readers will witness how the track has drastically changed over the years to accommodate epic battles among past legends like Fireball Roberts, Junior Johnson, Fred Lorenzen, Richard Petty, and Cale Yarborough, and such current favorites as Dale Earnhardt, Mark Martin, and Jeff Gordon, to name just a few.
