Asheville Track Racing?

Does anyone know anything about track racing in Ashville, NC? I live in Knoxville and have heard that there is a decent track up in the mountains. I'm having trouble finding any info on this topic, any help is greatly appreciated.

That would be a track that's grass/dirt. It's not an actual velodrome. Is that what you're looking for? I believe I've heard they get a pretty good size group out there to race.
