When Racing Was Racing : High Point Tracks

Stock car racing has early roots in the greater High Point area and now is North Carolina’s official state sport. In addition to being the home of a number of drivers, two tracks in High Point once held races drawing thousands of spectators. For a number of years, Bill Blair, Jr., son of race driver Bill Blair, wanted to memorialize the sites of the racetracks, now subdivisions of northern High Point. In 2017, two highway markers were placed by the City of High Point to mark the locations of Tri City Speedway and High Point Speedway. The High Point Museum hosted a small exhibit in celebration of the markers, featuring a number of photographs of the early days of racing.
