2nd Saturday at NASCAR Hall of Fame

For the Family

July 14 – Crank the Heat What’s hotter than noon of the 14th of July? The race track, of course. As the NASCAR season heats up, so does the Southern summer. Through track building and exploration, we’ll learn how weather and geography affect racing, and how clay, asphalt and sand fare in such heated conditions. August 11 – Course Test We love NASCAR. Celebrate all things NASCAR—legends, fans, teams and crew—while discovering the “hidden” individuals who’ve helped keep the wheels on the track. Test your racing knowledge in a fast-paced game of NASCARology (Jr. Edition), then put yourself in front of the camera at Victory Lane. September 8 – Race Day Rewind 2018 marks 70 years of NASCAR racing. Journey back in time to discover what life was like in 1948 when the sanctioning body was born. In conjunction with our current temporary exhibit, “1948: Proving Grounds,” we’ll explore old-school race weekends, how people traveled to the track, food, celebrations, clothes, sounds and more. October 13 – Seeing Sparks How does a little spark send a 3,000-pound object jetting from 0 to 200 mph? During this science-themed workshop, we race through a series of fun experiments to discover the chemical reactions that move cars and the safety measures that protect drivers and crew members. November 10 – Under the Hood The engines is the heart of a race car, and the chassis and frame are the skeleton. Together, we’ll break down the pieces and parts of a race car—how they’re made, where they go and what they do. Then we’ll talk about how they work together to get drivers into high gear. December 8 – Off-Seasons Greetings Celebrate the holidays with a home track roundup. Experience some of the ways tracks keep things festive in the “off-season,” and create a NASCAR-themed gift to give the race fan in your life. Check out the event website for more info.
