Every October, NASCAR excitement invades Randleman, NC. If you can imagine 40,000 people coming together to celebrate racing, you will get the picture. An enormous amount of fun happens in Randleman during NASCAR Day Festival.
In 1989, when the Chamber of Commerce launched the first NASCAR Day, little did they realize the celebration would grow to such large attendance and change to include a Festival. Each year, from 9 AM until 6 PM, Main Street is transformed by its vendors to include something for everyone. There is a large selection of things to see, buy or do, handmade crafts, food booths, live bands and entertainment, NASCAR show cars, drag cars, vintage antique automobiles, official NASCAR souvenir vendors and games for kids. Visitors especially enjoy the opportunity to meet and visit with members of the Winston Cup Old Timers Club, and admire the collection of vintage race cars on display.
Also, the Richard Petty Museum is located within one block of Main Street and visitors enjoy touring the 12,000 square foot facility, rich with mementos the Petty family has collected during several decades of racing. Racing highlights include awesome automobiles, an intimate video theater, as well as numerous awards won by Richard Petty. Apart from racing, the museum even includes Lynda Petty's fabulous doll collection.
The Randleman Chamber of Commerce is hosting the 25th Annual NASCAR Day Festival on Saturday, October 26, 2013.
