CONCORD, NC (WBTV) - As thousands of race fans descend on Cabarrus County, many of them have already fanned out to find something to do before the races.
The Good News here, you can find tons of racing shops and museums all within minutes of the track.
We started our tour over at Hendrick Motorsports. Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon and Dale Junior all have a nice selection of retired cars there.
We found a lot of people from all over the country checking out the Roush-Fenway team shop. They've got cars and memorabilia from Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, and a little old school Kurt Busch.
The best part, most of these shops and tours are free or cost very little to enjoy. We would have toured many more but we had a little trouble in the pits. Click the red camera icon to see our former crew chief try his best.
