We stopped here last summer on vacation and it was a great stop. We pulled into the lot this summer to find it closed and up for sale! So sad! :-(

OK, I am not an avid Nascar fan. However, I did enjoy this facility. It was interesting even for me. They allow you to see the activities down in the workshops with videos to explain what is going on. They will sell parts of cars,...More
