Opened in May of 2010, the NASCAR Hall of Fame honors drivers, crew chiefs, owners and other major contributors to the sport. Charlotte beat out many other cities, including Atlanta, Georgia, and Daytona Beach, Florida to host the hall.

Among the highlights of the hall's exhibits are:

  • The Belk High Octane Theater, a screening room located below ground level which shows videos to guests, including a primer video for first time visitors.

  • Glory Road: A 33-degree banked ramp (matching that of Talladega Superspeedway) featuring 18 different cars and saluting 46 past and current tracks.

  • The Great Hall: A 14 x 18 foot video screen where rotating exhibits will be staged.

  • "Studio 43:" Named in honor of Richard Petty's car number, this is the home of Showtime's Inside NASCAR television show.

  • Hall of Honor: A 360-degree wall with the each hall of fame member is the centerpiece of the building. Each enshrinee has their own exhibit.

  • Transporter and Racecar Simulators

  • Race Week Experience - Simulates an actual week in a NASCAR team, from race prep through inspection, practice, time trials and the race.

  • Heritage Speedway: The main focus of the museum, covering over 60 years of NASCAR history. There's a glass enclosed section with historic artifacts from the history of stock car racing.
