Here’s a sampling of the attractions and displays you’ll experience at the museum:

Glory Road: Glory Road is one of the can’t-miss signature exhibits at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte NC. This exhibit has been a focal point since the NASCAR Hall of Fame opened in May 2010. Encircling the Great Hall, Glory Road features 18 historic cars that tell the story of NASCAR.

Even better, on January 11, 2014, the NASCAR Hall of Fame unveiled a complete makeover of the iconic exhibit. The second generation, dubbed Glory Road 2.0, features a refresh of all 18 cars reflecting the six generations of NASCAR premier series race cars that have been driven and built by some of the sport’s most celebrated drivers, owners and mechanics.

Champions Exhibit: In continuing with a tradition started after the 2012 season, the NASCAR Hall of Fame has updated its Champions exhibit to reflect the winners of all three of NASCAR’s national touring series. The display now features fire suits and helmets from 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series champion Austin Dillon and 2013 NASCAR Camping World Series champion Matt Crafton.

Since this exhibit is kept current, you can count on new things to see if you space your visits accordingly.
