The Winston Cup Museum

The NASCAR Hall of Fame is in Charlotte, North Carolina (where it should be), but did you know that there is a Winston Cup Museum in Winston Salem? I have to admit that I didn’t–until I saw a billboard advertising it on I-40. Although it isn’t officially connected with RJR or any of that company’s affiliates, it “is a tribute to R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company’s 33-year NASCAR sponsorship.”

Although that sponsorship ended in 2003 (with the racing series renamed the “NEXTEL Cup Series” and now the “Sprint Cup Series”), I’m sure many long-time NASCAR fans remember their favorite driver winning the “Winston Cup.” I’m guessing this museum would be right up their alley.
