The Winston Cup Museum features a fascinating collection of cars, including two vehicles driven by 1971 Winston Cup champion Richard Petty and team owner Jack Roush in the final Winston Cup race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2003. There are also cars driven by Alan Kulwicki, Dale Earnhardt, Sr., and Wendell Scott on display, as well as a variety of exhibits, photographs, documents and memorabilia that capture the three decades that the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company sponsored NASCAR’s premier series. Visitors to the Museum can relive 1996 winner Michael Waltrip’s victory in The Winston Cup, along with Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s exciting win at the Talladega Superspeedway during the Winston No Bull 5 race.
Other notable attractions in the Museum include special exhibits showcasing champions Dale Earnhardt, Richard Petty, Jeff Gordon, Darrell Waltrip, and Harry Gant, including unique memorabilia, such as helmets, uniforms, trophies, and winner’s checks. There are never-seen-before photographs of the legendary era of NASCAR from the R.J. Reynolds Sports Marketing archives and a pictorial timeline of the rich history of Winston Cup Racing. Racecar lovers can enjoy interactive racing simulators and have their picture taken at victory lane, take part in interactive NASCAR trivia games and take home some unique memorabilia from the souvenir shop.
