Overview
As the second-oldest NASCAR track still running weekly races, Greenville-Pickens has earned a unique niche in racing history. In 1959, local driver David Pearson sped to a record 15 victories in one season, jump-starting a Hall of Fame career. As a young boy, Dale Earnhardt played in the infield while his father, Ralph, raced to the track championship in 1965. In 1971, ABC's Wide World of Sports televised the first live, start-to-finish NASCAR race at Greenville-Pickens. Many big names have competed here, but for every David Pearson and Richard Petty, there have been dozens of Donnie Bishops and Toby Porters: local favorites providing weekly thrills for a loyal fan base.
