The track, also known as Charlotte Fairgrounds Speedway, was 1/2 mile (.804 km) in length and had a clay surface. It was paved for a short time in the 1970s to allow the NASCAR circuit to hold races there.[needs update] Many racers have raced at Metrolina Speedway, including Dale Earnhardt Sr. and Harry Gant. It is one of many racetracks in the Metrolina region of North Carolina and South Carolina.
In 2009 plans were announced to reopen the track as Metrolina Speed and Sport Center. The track was to be repaved and the plans included a Go-Kart track, outdoor RC racing track, a hotel, and roof-top state park.
