It was a mainstay on the NASCAR circuit for nearly five decades.
But now, North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Carolina - once filled with thousands of fans at a time - lies silent and deserted.
The legendary track, which opened its doors to a crowd of more than 10,000 in 1947, was recently caught on camera by photojournalist Seph Lawless.
The photojournalist, also an activist, captured the dilapidated arena as part of an ongoing project which focuses on 'the most abandoned' sites in America.
He told Daily Mail Online: 'This arena was once filled with thousands of people now it sits eerily silent and completely abandoned. It was apocalyptic.'
