North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced that he plans for $30 million of the American Rescue Plan funding to be for infrastructure repairs at Charlotte Motor Speedway, Rockingham Speedway and North Wilkesboro Speedway, according to FOX 46 News.
The funds are part of the COVID-19 relief fund that President Joe Biden proposed.
According to the budget plan, each racetrack would receive $10 million each.
Charlotte is set to host all three NASCAR national series in two weeks.
Rockingham last hosted the Camping World Truck Series in 2013, while the Cup and Xfinity series previously ran in 2004.
Meanwhile, NASCAR last ran at North Wilkesboro in 1996, though iRacing held an event on a virtual version of the track last year.
Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis recently said he was willing to invest $1 million in North Wilkesboro in addition to building a small Camping World store on the property.
