Winston Salem-based developer Worth Mitchell, son of the
president of Piedmont Federal Savings and Loan Association, says he has more
than enough investors to purchase North Wilkesboro Speedway.
Idle for 11 years,
the speedway was listed for sale last year for $12 million.
Before purchasing the track, however, Mitchell wants
to see if there’s enough community support for attractions, including racing
series and concerts. According to Mitchell, it’s all in the hands of the people
of Wilkes County. If you have thoughts on the speedway- feel free to email
