Stan Rabineau is a veteran of racing with a myriad of experiences and a little black book that holds the personal contact info of some of the biggest names in racing. On our tour, we had access to the shop floors of many of the race shops we visited and the history and inside stories shared by Stan gave a context and understanding we never would have experienced touring on our own. We had the unanticipated pleasure of meeting and spending time with both Leonard and Glen Wood in their shop and museum and the number and variety of stops on the tour gave us all we expected and more. Highly customizable itinerary if you book well ahead. You'll feel like you know these people by the time you're done.

Thank you so much for touring with Garage Pass Shop Tours, Inc. We value our tour guest and especially their reviews. All of our guides have worked directly in NASCAR Racing. The knowledge and contacts that we have made over the last 40 years shows in our tours. This you saw first-hand. When you toured with Garage Pass Shop Tours, Inc. you also received a BIG discount on your hotel stay and you found that our price is almost one half less than another company. Thank you for touring with the BEST and also saving money too. Stan Rabineau – Crew Chief

This is a must for anyone visiting the Charlotte area... you don't even have to be a NASCAR fan to enjoy the shops. We reached out to Stan months ago, he handled everything for our group of four. Make sure you book the full day tour, sit back and relax, they handle all the driving. There is no way we could have seen that much trying to drive ourselves while staring at a GPS. Top notch attraction... what are you waiting for??? BOOK IT!

Stan was a fantastic guide. Very knowledgable and super nice. We truly enjoyed our tour with him. He made sure we had enough time at our favorite teams shops, even got us a behind the scenes special tour.

Each stop was fun and informative, and he was nice enough to snap some pictures for us.

Definitely recommend garage pass to anyone looking to tour the team shops! Ask for Stan!!

My wife and I booked our day tour after seeing various locations of the top garages. Very happy we did. We hit all our favorites during the busy time of May race week. Had great access within the shops and events that were going on. Timing is everything, and we were there when Dale Jr was at his shop and when Coach Gibbs arrived at his shop. Coach even gave us autographed copies of his latest book. It was a fun, full day, and Stan kept us informed and provided great insight and background at each stop. Best value we had on our trip.
