JDL Fast Track is a state-of-the-art indoor track facility that opened in early 2012.  While JDL is excited to host Conference Carolinas first indoor championship, they also bring a wealth of experience in hosting many of the regional meets throughout the indoor season from Wake Forest University and Winston Salem State Intercollegiate meets to hosting the NC High School State Championships. JDL was also recently named the host for the 2014 DII NCAA National Championships.
