Lights. Camera. NASCAR

When: May 17-Oct. 1 2013

Just because you live in the south doesn’t mean that you like NASCAR. Watching loud cars drive around and around and around just isn’t for everyone. What you may find more interesting is the huge influence that racing has had on film. In NASCAR Hall of Fame’s newest exhibit you’ll get to see the ways the sport has influenced blockbusters like Jurassic Park and Days of Thunder. Artifacts include items like the Cole Trickle car from Days of Thunder, the Doc Hudson car from Cars, the Wonder Bread car from Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and other objects from movie sets.
