Day 6

Today we drive from Lexington, NC to Chapel Hill by way of Rural Hall.

We started the day by visiting the Richard Childress Racing museum. Much of the museum is dedicated to the late Dale Earnhardt. This car his significance to Nancy and I because we watched it win at Talladega in October of 1999.

For Dale Earnhardt fans, this is a special car. Though we didn't see this race in person, this is the car that finally gave dale the Daytona 500 win that he tried for so long to get.

We drove to Rural Hall, NC to shoot the Yadkin Valley RR. This is the only engine we found at their shops. Looks like #9552 is getting a bit of a nose job.

Do you remember Mt. Pilot from the Andy Griffith show? This is it. Well, it is Pilot Mountain. Close to the base is the town of Pilot Mountain. Interesting.
