Carter Finley Stadium is home to North Carolina State University's Wolfpack. It has a 51,500 seat capacity that is often stretched to its limit during football season. The stadium honors Wilbert James (Nick) Carter (1902-1972), Harry Clifton Carter (1908-1990), and Albert Earle Finley (1895-1985). The two Carter brothers graduated from NC State's school of Textiles and became top executives in the J. P. Stevens Company. Finley, who eventually started his own business, the Raleigh Tractor and Equipment Company, always kept an active interest in supporting the college.
