Charlotte, North Carolina -
The third weekend in May was a busy one for the people of Charlotte. First and foremost, the Queen City played host the National Rifle Association's 139th Annual Meeting. Next, those looking to quench their Olympic fever could find Michael Phelps and other internationally ranked swimmers competing in the Charlotte UltraSwim. And finally, this week marked the opening of NASCAR’s Hall of Fame.
This was just too good of an opportunity to pass up, so we made some calls. As a special for those attending the convention, the NRA arrange for an after hours opening weekend tour.
Here's a peek at the artifacts, keepsakes, demos, trophies, and cars to be found inside the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
