NASCAR Hall of Fame

Charlotte Skyline

My brother wanted to check out the NASCAR Hall of Fame.  I always look forward for an excuse to head into the city so off we went.

Bank of America Stadium

You have to take the scenic route so you don’t miss out on shots like this of Bank of America Stadium.  Or did I miss the exit?  Nobody knows.

Nascar Hall of Fame

I think we’re getting close.

Getting closer.

Nascar Hall of Fame

And there it is.  The NASCAR Hall of Fame.  What’s next?

Nascar Hall of FameOh.  We have to go in?  I thought it was just a cool building. Come to find out, it has a lot of race cars in it.  Of course!  It is the NASCAR hall of fame, after all.  But you’re in for a whole lot more and don’t have to be a NASCAR fan.  You don’t want to miss learning about a true American sport from its roots to where it is now with a lot of hands on along the way.

Just in case you didn’t know, we’re 6 miles that-a-way to Charlotte Speedway.

Nascar Hall of FameYep, tires and a fuel can.  What did you expect, Gucci?

Nascar Hall of FameNow you appreciate how heavy that tire is.  They only make it look light.

Nascar Hall of FameSame with that fuel can.  It’s not filled with feathers… hey wait.  Where did 76 go?

Nascar Hall of FameI’m sure you’ve seen pieces of racing templates but it puts it in perspective when you see all of the templates at the same time.

Nascar Hall of FameAs you can see, there are a lot of hands-on interactive activities, informative displays, and other state of the art activities.

Nascar Hall of FameThe race is over.  I showed you enough and I’m not going to spoil any more of your fun.
