The Brumos Collection

The Brumos Collection

From the main collection to interactive experiences that take you back to the early days of automotive design, racing, and the drivers themselves, the Brumos Collection is a walk-through automotive and racing lore you won’t soon forget.

The museum was designed to take guests through two unique experiences. The first section of the collection features open cockpit racers and early automotive innovations, with the oldest being an 1894 Peugeot. Besides the cars, there are engines, vintage racing equipment, and drivers’ gear.

All of the cars have a kiosk that provides the car’s history, vintage photographs, and stat sheets detailing car specifications. The second area is full of Porsche race cars from 1953-2017. The cases in this section are filled with legendary race trophies and awards throughout the years.

From the cars themselves to trophies, pictures, engines, and more, you’ll find plenty of racing memorabilia. Seeing some of the older, more historical items will take you back to the time when early records were set by drivers who were attempting feats never accomplished before and the cars themselves were running at top speeds.

You’ll also get to see memorabilia dedicated to Brumos racing, beginning with Hubert Brundage and including the multiple 24 Hours of Daytona trophies. There are also cases dedicated to legendary racers, Hurley Haywood and Peter Gregg.

If there’s one thing you to take away from your visit, it’s a newfound appreciation for the drivers, the mechanics, and the innovators who helped usher in such an exciting era in automotive racing and design.

The Panoz Museum

The Panoz Museum

The Panoz Museum in Hoschton, Georgia is a must stop for any automotive enthusiast, especially race fans. Not only is the Panoz hand made right on site but they also display various models in the museum, as well as some of the actual race cars and racing memorabilia.

I had the opportunity to visit the museum on a Sunday afternoon and got a Panoz history lesson by the curator, Sydney. Sydney explained the various models including when the Panoz bodies switched from being all aluminum to full carbon fiber.

When it came to explaining the racing history and the pedigree of the Panoz brand Sydney didn’t miss a beat.  You want to see the car that Dr. Panoz thought he killed Mario Andretti in it that car is on display.  You want to see the first race car hybrid in the world, that’s on display as well.

The museum itself is by no means a large museum, but what is on display illustrates what Dr. Panoz intended these cars to be all about.  You can order yourself a Panoz if you like, but you may have to wait just a little bit before you can take delivery since they only build one car per year.

If you’re like most of us you may want to settle for a t-shirt, hat or scale model. Panoz is less than an hour from the heart of Atlanta and is near the world-class resort, winery, and golf course, Chateau Elan.

You can visit the Panoz Museum for free Wednesday through Saturday. Enjoy the gallery of photos we took during our trip.

Richard Childress Racing Museum

Richard Childress Racing Museum

The Richard Childress Racing Museum, located front and center on the 52-acre RCR campus in Welcome, North Carolina, offers visitors a walk-through time and traces how an independent one-car team evolved into one of NASCAR’s most successful organizations.

The RCR Museum takes visitors through a journey that includes team owner Richard Childress’ earliest days as a NASCAR driver, the championship-winning years with Dale Earnhardt and the No. 3 team, the evolution and success of the team after Earnhardt’s untimely passing, and Childress’ passion for the outdoors.

Based in the 47,000-square foot shop that was home to Earnhardt’s No. 3 team for many years, visitors have the opportunity to step back in time to see race cars and other artifacts that have contributed to some of the most iconic moments in NASCAR history.

The museum hosts the largest collection of No. 3 Goodwrench Chevrolets, including the 1998 Daytona 500-winning car, the 1995 Brickyard 400 winner and each of the special paint schemes driven by Earnhardt in the All-Star races from 1995-2000. Guests can learn how the RCR crew developed, built and prepared Chevrolets each week by walking through the different departments of the old race shop.

The museum is also home to some of the team’s most successful cars and iconic moments outside of the Earnhardt-Childress legacy:
– 2001 No. 29 Chevrolet driven to victory by Kevin Harvick at Atlanta Motor Speedway
– 2003 Brickyard 400-winning No. 29 Chevrolet
– 2007 No. 29 Chevrolet as it left Victory Lane after RCR’s second Daytona 500
– 1998 Budweiser Shootout-wining No. 31 Chevrolet driven by Mike Skinner

Along with the team’s Cup Series success, the museum also showcases RCR’s championship efforts in the NASCAR XFINITY, Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Racing Series. The center section of the facility is dedicated to Childress’ devotion to wildlife and outdoor conservation. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, the North Carolina Wildlife Habitat Foundation, the National Wild Turkey Federation and Ducks Unlimited, all actively involved in the conservation of the nation’s wildlife and natural resources, are showcased in this area along with many of the animal trophies Childress has taken over the years.

The RCR team store has all of the latest apparel and souvenirs for RCR fans of all ages and sizes.

Look closely and you will see former No. 3 pit crew member and Museum curator Danny “Chocolate” Myers in his office, often recording his live show on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio.
