Spartanburg Has a Long and Strong Connection with Stock Car Racing

By Mike Hembree, produced in cooperation with the HubCity Writers Project. The Hub City, so-named because of its railroad connections, for many years also was the "hub city” for NASCAR racing.

At the time, as we walked out of the shop with a Schwinn Sport and Schw
