Today we will be traveling to (you can view these locations on the map here):
- Kevin Harvick Incorporated in Kernersville, NC – Location #1 on map
- Richard Childress Racing in Welcome, NC - Location #5 on map
- Childress Vineyards in Lexington, NC – Location #4 on map
This will be our third visit to each of these facilities and like to visit them all in the same day because they are located approximately one hour from downtown Charlotte. You can get directions or see where they are in relation to the other race shops by viewing our hot spots map in the sidebar.If you are in town for races this weekend you might want to consider heading over to the parking lot of Concord Mills around 4 pm. That’s when Junior Johnson will be on hand to sign autographs. Just look for the bright green Windstream Truck. In addition you can enter to win a pair of tickets located on the frontstretch to the Coke 600 and a family 4 pack of tickets to the Windstream Pole Night on Thursday. You must be present to win.
Also don’t forget that today you can stop by Michael Waltrip Racing / Race World USA (location #14 on map) to pick up tickets for Wednesday’s fan appreciation day. There are only 300 wristbands being given out so stop in early and get them at the retail store.Check back later in the day for video blogs from our stops. Hopefully we can get some great shots of the race shops as well as other popular locations in the area
