NASCAR Hall of Fame looks South
Richmond is officially out of the running for the NASCAR Hall of Fame according to this story from the RTD. The finalists are Charlotte, Atlanta, and Daytona.
Selfishly I hope that Charlotte wins because its closest. I also think it would be a good locale because it is smack-dab in the heart of racing country and is easily accessible from many nearby states. Daytona makes sense because of the history, but is pretty out of the way. Atlanta has sort of become the new capital of the South, but it is already overloaded with tourist attractions.
In any case, you can be sure that wherever they build it, I will go.
