Event Description

Kids and kids at heart can fuel up on fun at the new 2nd Saturday program at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Guests are invited to explore the exciting elements of racing with a new topic and interactive activity each month. January 13 A Look at the Legends Join us in celebrating the NASCAR Hall of Fame Class of 2018. This historic class is filled with a mix of legends, including championship-winning drivers, crew chiefs and engine builders as well as a legendary voice of NASCAR who brought the sport to the world through broadcasting. Through hands-on activities, discover the contributions from this year’s class. • Ken Squier – Step into the media booth and call a race as a NASCAR announcer. • Red Byron – Experience a simulation of racing on a dirt track. • Robert Yates – Play the role of engine builder, and solve a tricky engine challenge. • Ray Evernham – Learn the ins and outs of crew chief communication. • Ron Hornaday Jr. – Build the most durable paper truck and compete for the win. February 10 Engineering for the Future Celebrate Engineering Month by racing 32 years into the future to 2050. What new technologies for communication have been created? What new car designs exist? How has driver comfort and safety changed? How has the pit stop evolved? Join our pop-up maker space to design innovative fire suits, headsets and other supplies made for the future of racing. March 10 Women in Racing Women have been a driving force in racing since Sara Christian and Ethel Flock Mobley took to the track. Hear the stories about the women that have impacted the sport. Through interactive games and trivia, discover female drivers, inventors, engineers, reporters, officials and owners. April 14 Make and Model Flex your mechanic muscles in Smokey’s Garage by designing, building and racing your own car. Before your new set of wheels hit the track, you’ll explore the pieces and parts that make real cars tick. Then you’ll choose the car’s paint scheme, complete its inspection and make adjustments before chasing down that checkered flag. May 12 Pit Crew Practice Behind every driver is a pit crew. Made up of roles like tire changer, jackman, gas man and more, the team plays a pivotal role in ensuring the car performs at its best. Trust, training and skill are vital for the fastest pit stops. From fitness training and conditioning to executing practice pit stops in full gear, step up to the challenge of being a part of the pit crew. Can you handle the pressure? June 9 Summer Road Trip Load up the RV and hit the road. As we travel from track to track across the U.S., discover the states, traditions and high-octane fun that is around every corner. You never know who you might meet along the way. *Scheduled activities are subject to change.
