To See and Do: 4 like I said, if you're a hardcore longtime fan, this is the place for you. Plenty of cars squeezed-in from all over Nascar's history--even some non-Nascar racers too. Yeah, it's extremely cramped, and yeah, it looks a little like a glorified private collection, but they're a volunteer organization.

Accessibility: 3 while it's great to look around both the museum and the gift shop, there's virtually nothing interactive. This is the kind of place that's great for big-time fanatics, but I could see not holding much interest for non-fans.
Gift Shop: 5 since most everything here has been donated from various race teams, there are literal "one of a kind" items here. You can spend over an hour just poring through all the different obscure hero cards!
Friendliness of Staff: 5 the tour is self-guided, while the staff is in the gift shop. Everybody there was quite nice.
Insider Tip: If you're looking for race-used sheet metal, there's a large cache in the museum itself.
Final Verdict--See it, especially if you think you've seen it all.
