Richard Childress Racing Museum
Very interesting place if you are remotely interested in Nascar Racing or the history of racing in general. They have a ton of cars, lots of memorabilia and a great deal of machinery that shows how they designed and developed the cars. It would be a good day out for kids of all ages. The price of the tickets are reasonable and the staff are very friendly. There is a store to buy anything to do with racing you could wish. There is no food on site, I would recommend a local BBQ place nearby as you are in the BBQ capital of the US!
A must do when in Charlotte area. Cost children under 6 free. Adults 10.00 seniors 8.00 and children over 7 is 5.00. This museum is very nice. Does a great job respectful of Dale Earnhardt time racing for RCR. All current and past race drivers. Give yourself 3 hrs for the museum. Not able to see shop area or pit stop practice like other race shops. Nice large gift shop area price resemble.
I decided to stop here and check out all of the Dale Earnhardt cars, I'm glad I did. Saw his Daytona 500, Brickyard and Winston 500 No Bull win cars plus many other themed versions he raced over the year.
As a Dale Earnhardt Sr fan, this is a must see. I found this museum, Dale's former race shop, accidentally and it filled my heart with joy. It checked off a bucket list item I didn't know I had. Outstanding!
If you're a racing fan, this is a must stop. So much history in such a cool layout. Wish we could have seen the current cars being built but the museum was more than enough.
