    Pro-Touring Scene in NC?

    I'll be moving to the FT Bragg/Fayetteville area in about six months. What can anybody tell me about the PT scene in NC? I don't really care how far I have to go. Any help is appreciated... tracks, shows, shops, etc...

    You will be close to Charlotte/Mooresville. Plenty happens up that way. Home to DSE, Fat Man and others. I see a post from time to time out of Fayetteville. Must be a few PTer's there. I'm a hundred miles to the east. I've built a few in the PT style. Feel free to look me up.

    Don't know much about Fayetteville other than my ex lives near there
    I'm 4 hours west in Asheville. If you're looking for some twisty-turning roads then you need to get here. Deals Gap -Tail of the Dragon is a popular cruise for many clubs. My curves per mile than anywhere in the country I believe

    The Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, with 318 curves in 11 miles, is America's number one motorcycle and sports car road. The nearby Cherohala Skyway is quickly becoming number two with its remote 60 miles of scenic mountain highway. The area also has other roads less traveled, but just as exciting.

    I live in the Rockingham/Hamlet area, about 45 minutes SW of Ft Bragg. I am building a 69 Camaro and have a 68 Camaro that has some PT stuff. We have Rockingham Dragway and the Rockingham Speedway. You are not far from Maxton which has land speed racing every other month. Not many PTers around my area either, but I have noticed more in NC lately. When you get settled look me up.

    Dale, don't forget about the cruise in your town of Concord on the forth Saturday. I was there in July. They had a nice turnout, I heard it was their biggest. Oakboro too.

    Dale,

    I am in Raleigh, attempting my first 1969 Camaro pt build. You may want to checkout Lowes Motor Speeday schedule for show like Food Lion Auto Fair. That shows has lots of vendors( DSE, etc. ), parts and cars. There is one coming up 9/10-9/13 and Goodguys Southeastern Nationals coming up 10/30( more cars than parts). I also checkout the State Fair Ground schedule for smaller shows( only 15 mins from my house). This link may also be helpful http://www.carolinacollectorautofest.com/

    Just a FYI, DSE does not do the auto fair in September. They are in Pigeon Forge Tenn. that weekend at the Shades of the Past show as well as the following w/e for RTTHs. They wiil be at Lowes for Goodguys in October.

    I grew up in Oakboro, my Dad still lives there. Went last month and month before and that 1 stoplight town was packed! I bet there was 3 or 4 thousnad people and over 100 cars.

    Yes deal's gap has 318 turns in 11 miles, but there are other roads in the area that you'd be better off spending your time on. Because of the dragon's popularity there are a lot of knuckleheads, accidents, and cops.
