Friday Night at NASCAR
February 8TH, 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
A reception to remember! Join NCDLI2019 attendees and sponsors for a night of entertainment and interactive exhibits that honor the history and heritage of NASCAR. The high-tech venue will entertain race fans and non-fans alike. Attendees will have access to over 50 interactive activity kiosks where guests can play a game, perform a challenge, or learn more about the exhibit they’re standing in. Heavy hors d'oeuvres and beverages are included.
Each guest will have access to over 50 interactive activity kiosks where guests can play a game, perform a challenge, or learn more about the exhibit they’re standing in. You will have the option to personalize a card by creating a racing persona and selecting a NASCAR legend as their host. Guests can earn up to 800 points at 8 different stations that test skill, knowledge and performance. Challenge scores can be checked by logging on to the website printed on the hard card along with the card’s individual access code.
Race Week chronicles a modern day race team during their work week. The exhibit starts off in a race shop where the cars are custom tailored each week for whichever track they’re going to. The car and spare car are then loaded up into a hauler – we have a real one your guests can walk through – the hauler does just what it sounds like, hauls the car, spare car, and all the tools and equipment needed to the track. Guests can test their skills at inspecting cars just like NASCAR officials do. They can call a race like a radio/tv sideline announcer, make some practice laps at qualifying, perform a pit stop at the Pit Crew Challenge, and of course race in the driving simulators. Heritage Speedway is our most traditional “museum-like” area with tons of artifacts and rich history, there are plenty more opportunities for guests to use their Hard Cards. One of my favorite exhibits in Heritage Speedway showcases the photo finishes that makes NASCAR such a special sport.
Among the interactive activities guests will have access to the Pit Crew Challenge; the group will be broken up in to a 3 person pit crew and perform a simulated pit stop. One person will be in charge of jacking the car up in the air, one person will fill the car up with gas, and one person will change the tire. The mini teams will be racing against the clock to see who can get the fastest pit time just like on TV during race season. In the Race Car Driving Simulators the group will sit in a real race car that remains stationary and play a group video game against one another using iRacing software; the person with the fastest lap time wins. Qualifying driving is like a practice round for the simulators where the guests will get a chance to experience the simulated race track by themselves before they race in a competition.
