CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Wendell Scott's racing suit, a money clip Richard Petty gave to every driver in the field for his last race, Jack Smith's Pontiac that paced, but eventually lost, the very first World 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
These are a few of the more than 1000 artifacts on display in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
On Tuesday media members from across the country got to go inside and see what all the fuss is about.
Next Tuesday, everyone else to get to see inside.
Visitors will be able to do much more than simply look at the exhibits that tell the 60 plus year history of NASCAR racing.
The Hall of Fame is filled with interactive activities that allow visitors to drive a race car simulator, either alone, or in a race with friends.
There are also stations where visitors can practice pit stops against the clock, test their skills in the broadcast booth, and experience the feel of 33 degree banking.
