....North Carolina,zoom, zoom, and a left hand turn,
at the NASCAR track, smell the rubber burn;
discontinued in two thousand four,
the big guys don't race here anymore.

It was an attraction that few places have,
when the track closed there was no soothing salve;
but Rockington survives on to a brighter day,
people still work and children still play.
