North Carolina Hotel Reservations
NASCAR Hall of Fame
Racing fans in the Charlotte area are in the right place. Charlotte, and much of the NC Mountain region, is considered by many to be the "NASCAR Valley," because of the number of famous drivers from North Carolina. In 2009, the twenty-story NASCAR Plaza office building opened, followed by the opening of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, in 2010.
The buildings are located in downtown Charlotte, near the Charlotte Convention Center. The Hall of Fame honors NASCAR drivers, crew chiefs, owners and major contributors to the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing.
Begin your tour of the Hall of Fame by watching a primer video in the Belk High Octane Theater, before heading to the Ceremonial Plaza. The Glory Road, a 33-degree banked ramp, showcases eighteen cars and several historic and current racing tracks.
The Great Hall features a fourteen foot video screen and exhibits. "Studio 43," honoring Richard Petty, broadcasts the Inside NASCAR television show. For an adrenalin rush, test your skills in the Transporter and Racecar simulators. With so much to see, make sure you have time for it all.
