The North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame is located in Mooresville, a town near Charlotte known as “Race City, USA.” Car lovers will be in heaven, with everything from a 1957 Mercury to an A.J. Foyt USAC Camaro. Even novices will appreciate the slick models of stock cars and drag racers while learning the stories behind them. There are 35 cars on display, as well as videos of exciting races and a photo gallery of historic racing moments. There’s also an interesting exhibit of motor sports–related art.
In the museum section you’ll discover the history of racing while wandering through the ranks of cars driven by the likes of Davie Allison, Rusty Wallace, Tim Flock and Cale Yarborough. Many of these cars are in original mint condition. Others, such as the 1988 Cale Yarborough Hardees Oldsmobile, have been lovingly restored. Catch some of these cars in action on the screen in the Goodyear Theater.
Admire art representing key moments in motor sport history by artists including Sam Bass, Gary Hill and Jeanne Barnes, all known for their connection to racing. Prints of some of these works are available for purchase from the hall’s gift shop.

This hotel was a great place to stay. The staff was excellent, the room was very nice and it was very clean. The hotel was close to shopping and the main highway. We would definitely stay there again
The room was clean. The AC worked good. The bed was not that comfortable. The breakfast was cold and I was eat at 6:40am. The staff was very helpful.
Pleasant staff, clean, orderly rooms, excellent shower.
Convenient and clean. Uber available as well. Would book again.
I liked the location. It was near all sorts of amenities and was just off the Interstate. Everything about the room was as it should have been. It was perfect for an overnight stopover.
Did not care for the TV system. Control was hard to use and picture could not be adjusted.
