The NASCAR Hall of Fame will reopen to the public on Sept. 16 with limited capacity and enhanced cleaning and safety measures. The public can visit Wednesday-Monday from 10 AM to 5 PM, Tuesday will be reserved for special events, which they are calling "Hot Pass Tuesdays." The Hall is also holding special events to welcome back members on Saturday, September 12th and Sunday, September 13th. 

We're thrilled and ready to welcome back guests to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, the health and safety of our visitors and staff is our highest priority, and based on months of hard work from our teammates at the Hall and Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, we are confident we are prepared to safely reopen. 
Winston Kelley, Executive Director of NASCAR Hall of Fame.

 Below are just a few of the measures being implemented at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: 

  • In accordance with state and local guidelines, guests are required to wear face masks or coverings throughout their time at the Hall
  • Cleaning crews have increased cleaning frequency with special attention given to high-touch areas (elevator buttons, stair handrails, etc.)
  • Guests will be provided with a complimentary individual stylus to accommodate no-touch interactions with the Hall’s many touch-screen exhibits. In addition, interactive displays will be sanitized multiple times per day
  • Electrostatic/disinfectant sprayers will be used in high-touch areas including, but not limited to, the High Octane Theater, racing simulators, Pit Crew Experience, and Legends Room
  • Color-coordinated microfiber cloths are being used with a disinfectant cleaning solution to eliminate cross-contamination in high-touch areas
  • Dozens of hand sanitizer stations have been installed strategically throughout the building in high traffic areas
  • All NASCAR Hall employees have been provided with face masks and are required to wear them while on duty
  • Foot claws have been installed on all restroom doors for hands-free use
  • Cleanliness patrols are being implemented to disinfect high-touch areas throughout the day and to check that all soap and sanitizer dispensers are full
  • All team members have completed mandatory training sessions to understand and implement these modified procedures and sanitation practices to provide for the health of both guests and employees
  • CDC “Stop the Spread of Germs” posters and signage detailing proper handwashing/hygiene procedures in both English and Spanish have been placed in all bathrooms
In addition, the CRVA is also pursuing Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR certifications for all of its buildings. This is the gold standard of prepared facilities and the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation for them.
