Racing to return to North Wilkesboro Speedway

I saw this story today while surfing the local board. If there are any old-school NASCAR fans out there you'll find this story very interesting. There hasn't been a race at North Wilkesboro since Bruton Smith bought the place and closed it down in 1996 moving the races that were held there to the new (at the time) Texas Motor Speedway over 10 years ago!

Parts of the Movie Days of Thunder with Tom Cruise were filmed there in 1990.

There is an event scheduled for next weekend May 29-30!

Wow, that is pretty cool! Bob Bahre bought the track with Smith and took one of the Cup dates to New Hampshire, now Smith owns New Hampshire!
