We were surprised at all the NASCAR history packed into one showplace. Interesting memorabilia from years ago. There are several actual cars on the premises. There is also a small gift shop. Admission was $5 and worth an hour or more of your time.

Stopped by, on a late Friday afternoon, and stayed about an hour. Fun place, and a lot more memorabilia on display, than you might imagine. Quite a bit of NASCAR history, here. Nice gift shop, too. Restrooms are available. Admission is $6.00; senior citizens cost $4.00, each. Worth a stop, for NASCAR fans!

You can spend hours in here. Lots of history from over the years. The people that work there are very knowledgeable if you have any questions about the cars. Awesome place! The gift ship has a very good selection.

Coolest cars on display, and the staff can tell you just about everything about each one. Great variety of motor sports history and it's displayed so that everything seems almost accessible

They had some great cars from some of the best drivers. They have a very informative movie about nascar and it's drivers playing on a loop and a section on the beginning and how it started around moonshining. Really enjoyed the visit!

This is a non-profit organization. All proceeds from the (modest) ticket sales goes to SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now). The collection is diverse and interesting. Brings back a lot of memories of great races! The staff are wonderful and welcoming. The offered tons of information about the Mooresville area, provided maps to shopping and restaurant recommendations. Definately worth visiting!

I was not impressed. It was very expensive to start and not very little kid friendly. My husband did love it however being a NASCAR enthusiast. Maybe if there was more driving activities to do or if we had seen a driver it would have been.
