We look forward to a long and very positive relationship with the facility and all those who have expressed an interest in hosting our event.”
“TheNorth Carolina indoor state high school meet was one of our early targets when we initially started discussing the project to build an indoor track. To realize that goal of bringing the indoor state meet to Winston-Salem after only one year is a tremendous milestone for us,” said David Shannon, owner of JDL Fast Track.
TheNCHSAA state indoor meet is the third championship meet to move their event to JDL Fast Track, on the heels of NCAA Division 1 Southern Conference and Big South decisions to do so for 2013 and 2014.
About JDL Fast Track
JDL FastTrack, one of the premier indoor track and field facilities in the southeast, is the brainchild of two former Wake Forest University runners and current real estate developers, David Shannon and Craig Longhurst, who identified and fulfilled a need for an area indoor track facility for use by colleges, high schools, local track clubs and youth track organizations.
The privatelyowned, dedicated indoor track and field facility, which opened in January 2012, houses a 200-meter oval track with a Mondotrack FTX surface—the same surface that will be used at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Field event areas include two pole vault runways, two long/triple jump runways, one high jump apron and one throws area. The facility also includes a 100-meter warm-up track, office and meeting-room space, a training room, and hospitality suites for coaches’ or conference officials’ meetings at large events.
