"River Bend Raceway"

(aka Rocky Mount Short Track)

We currently only have the 2 videos seen below. We need your help in finding any photographs or history on this track.

Follow the misadventures of two "Lost Yankees" who on a beautiful early Spring weekend in 1970 thought they would invade the little North Carolina short track named River Bend Raceway. Their plan was to steal the huge purse (and maybe a few lovely Southern Belles) and hightail it back north and celebrate their victory. Then they'd invest their winnings in emgering technologies like Triumph, BSA and Norton Motorcycles, Beavertooth chain breakers, Delorean Motorcars, Chevy Corvairs and many other investments that would set them up for an early retirement. Both planned to become successful Flat Track Race Promoters too.
