Carolina 500
Event

A former NASCAR Winston Cup race held in the spring at North Carolina Speedway at Rockingham, North Carolina.  The first Winston Cup spring race at North Carolina Speedway was run in 1966 and called the Peach Blossom 500.  From 1967-1981 it was called the Carolina 500, from 1982-1985 it was called the Warner W. Hodgdon Carolina 500 and afterward it became the Goodwrench 500.

In 2008 the ARCA RE/MAX Series ran a race at Rockingham called the Carolina 500k.
