A Day at the NASCAR® Hall of Fame

A Day at the NASCAR® Hall of  Fame

The NASCAR® Hall of Fame (NHOF) Charlotte NC real estate has a lot to offer its visitors. It is an attraction which provides loads of entertainment. The ultra-modern venue has something for one and all, whether or not they are race fans.

There is a wide variety of exhibits to choose from, so one who has a need for speed can do a one-day tour, but there is enough there that people may choose to race back over several trips. Exhibits cover stock car racing and its history and information about race cars and their drivers.

The exhibits at the Hall will awaken the senses. The events at the High Octane Theater rarely stay the same, so even repeat visitors will have a new experience. With all those activities to choose from, one is bound to get hungry. The NHOF Café is one place to satiate that hunger. If that doesn’t strike one’s fancy, then another option is to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings. After an exciting visit, people may want a keepsake, which they can find at the gift shop.

The NHOF Fame is located on a five-acre lot which the City of Charlotte owns. NASCAR® licenses the site and the Regional Visitors Authority in Charlotte operates it. On the grounds are a 19 story, independently owned office building, and an expansion of the Charlotte Convention Center. The expansion spans over 120,000 or so square feet and features a ballroom that is approximately 40,000 square feet.

The NHOF inducted five drivers in 2010. Those five drivers are Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt, Bill France, Sr., Junior Johnson, and Bill France, Jr. For all those die-hard NASCAR® fans, here are a few trivia questions and their answers.
