Carteret County Speedway

Carteret County Speedway, opened in September 2015, is the vision of track owner Bobby Watson.  Watson was a renowned Go-Kart promoter and a racer before that.

With a lot of help, which included consultation with “The Last American Hero”, racing legend Junior Johnson, the 4/10-mile track took over a decade to build but the dream came to life in the summer of 2015.  On Labor Day Weekend in 2015, the former Go-Kart track hosted its first race as the brand new Carteret County Speedway with Clay Jones claiming the win in a thriller.

Carteret County Speedway is 4/10-mile in length with eight degrees (8°) of banking in the turns and four degrees (4°) of banking on the straightaways.  The low banking and the wide, sweeping corners makes the track more of a driver’s racetrack.

However, Carteret County Speedway is more than just a racetrack.  For racers and fans, it’s a racing paradise.  Located just a few miles away from Emerald Isle, North Carolina, the track is also a museum of racing history with memorabilia collected over decades surrounding the speedway.

Carteret County Speedway is located on 501 Whitehouse Fork Rd in Swansboro, North Carolina, just off highway 58 near Peletier, North Carolina.

The 4/10-mile oval located just a few miles from Emerald Isle was NASCAR sanctioned in 2017.
