NASCAR mecca - but you already knew that

We had three hours for this and it wasn't enough. Even casual racing fans will enjoy it. Hard-core stock car fans could spend the whole day here and still not get enough. Parking... read more

We had three hours for this and it wasn't enough. Even casual racing fans will enjoy it. Hard-core stock car fans could spend the whole day here and still not get enough. Parking is convenient and not overpriced, plus once you are parked it's only a five or six block walk to a ton of restaurants and shopping. If you... More

This place is so cool! I am not a NASCAR fan, but this place was fun. You get to drive a car in a video game, but feels so real. And so many things to do. Lots of history also.

We took the grandchildren for a day out. Personally I found it VERY noisy and there was a lot of walking to do. The "grands" enjoyed it enormously, more than we did, and they would go back again...at some future date. The NHOF does explain some facets which were unknown to us. Overall a different experience. Once in a lifetime!

Went here with friends and we unexpectedly spent about 3hours in this place. We did not really know anything about NASCAR, and it was a good place to learn and amaze at how it started and where it is now. You could see the past wrecks and what they've been doing to improve the safety of the NASCAR drivers. There... More

The hall of fame tells the story from the beginning of NASCAR to the present. A lot of hands-on experiences. Very clean and staff is very knowledeable and friendly. Also wanted to visit and finally had the opportunity while attending the ACC Championship game.

Can you say b-o-r-i-n-g?????? They could have exhibits explaining how a modern race car is built vs the past or show the effects of air on a moving car or the physics involved. BUT it is designed to entertain the village idiot.

In trying to keep to 29 year olds entertained for the weekend, my husband and I decided to take them to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. I must admit that I am not a NASCAR fan, but was interested in the historical part of the origin of NASCAR. My guests were not necessarily NASCAR fans, either, but we all decided... More

I have been watching NASCAR since it was on ABC Wide World of Sports. I really enjoyed seeing all of these cars up close. This Hall of Fame was very well put together and a awesome tribute to my favorite sport. If you are a new fan or an old one like myself, do yourself a favor and take the... More
