Probably priced to high right now. Who wants to pay more than $20 to see it?

The 20 bucks would be worth it if you could access all the interactive activities for free.. but they charge you to go into the theater as well as using in simulator ..

Junior Johnson

Second

Bill France Jr.

Bobby Allison

Cale Yarborough

Darrell Waltrip

Third and on...three per class

Lee Petty was not even in the top three of his generation. What about Fireball Roberts? Just because you win the first Daytona 500 doesn't mean you are worthy of a Hall of Fame. Hell, I'd put Maurice Petty in before Lee, he built the motors of 250 winners.

True buts its more than just numbers to me. i think fireball makes it in as just a racer, while petty makes it in for what they did a racer as well as the influence off the track. From lees family friendly attitude that drew in alot of early fans to lee being the head of the 1st family to have 4 generations of pro athletes and he was also nascars 1st driver to win the cup 3 times. And yea he was the winner of the 1st 500 which holds alot of merrit just due to the fact of how prestigious that race is.
