Features Of The New NASCAR Hall Of Fame

More than 60 years after the founding of NASCAR, stock-car racing has opened a $200 million Hall of Fame in Charlotte, NC. Here's what fans can expect:

  • All museum employees required to say "Vroom!" when walking past guests
  • Section featuring a man in a racing suit constantly running around on fire
  • The Mangle-Matic, a machine that shows visitors what they might look like if they were involved in a 200 mph crash
  • Inclined turns to prevent visitors from careening into the exhibits
  • Historical exhibit featuring NASCAR's 40 most famous skid marks
  • Membership can be paid for in aluminum cans
  • The Jiffy Lube Interactive Pit Crew Experience, in which patrons probably won't realize they're actually putting in a one-hour shift at a Charlotte-area Jiffy Lube
  • Restrictor plate prevents the entire building from traveling 200 mph
