The NASCAR Hall of Fame is at 400 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. between S. Brevard and S. Caldwell sts. The intent of this high-tech, interactive attraction is to appeal to everyone, not just race fans. It showcases the history and heritage of NASCAR with artifacts, stock cars, the High Octane Theater, the Hall of Honor—where the most recent NASCAR Hall of Fame inductees are enshrined—and hands-on exhibits. Among the inductees in the Hall of Fame's inaugural class are Junior Johnson and seven-time NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt.
Glory Road showcases 18 cars reflecting the six generations of NASCAR premier series race cars as well as 42 current and historic tracks. Various degrees of banking at racetracks are depicted, including the impressive 33-degree incline at Talladega Superspeedway. The more than 50 interactive exhibits include the Pit Crew Challenge and racing simulators that invite guests to engage with the sights and sounds of the sport.
