Continuing with Vacation Days 2 & 3

After we left the winery we made our way down to Charlotte to the Nascar Hall of Fame. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it certainly wasn't this. This place is huge, I think 4 stories and it has so much stuff in. They have one area so you can change a tire, jack the car, put fuel in the car and of course we had to try it. We also did a qualifying lap, we were in our own cars but it was a simulation, that was my first simulation experience and it felt very real. I qualified, I was a little slow but I didn't wreck. We spent about 5 hours at the Hall of Fame.
This track is set up like Talladega, it is very steep.
Richard Petty's stuff.
Another view of the track.
After we left we were heading to Myrtle Beach, because I love TJ so much I had to make a stop before we left the area. I was like a kid in a candy store. Oh why do they not build one in Pensacola, I've written to the company and they responded by saying maybe one day they will make it here.
We spent the night somewhere and day 3 finished our route to Myrtle Beach. We actually stopped off at Darlington Raceway but I didn't take any pictures. The husband was very excited to see that track.

Finally we arrive in Myrtle Beach and get to our room, this was our wonderful view.
I may not finish this tour until after the weekend, we are planning to go to Daytona for the race this weekend, then I'll have more pictures to share. In case I don't get back hope everyone has a wonderful and safe weekend.

Wow the hall of fame is so neat. I didn't know you could do a qualifying lap. The water looks so calm in that picture. Love days like that. I hope y'all have a great time at the race!

I agree, I love Trader Joe's and we don't have one in Denver. Maybe some day.....
