National Stock Car Hall of Fame - Rockfish, Bermuda Shorts

Just off I-95, we stopped at the National Stock Car Museum and Hall of Fame at Darlington Raceway. The museum bills itself as having the largest collection of race cars in the world. There are lots of race cars there, plus videos of famous races. If you go when NASCAR is not hosting a race, as we did, you can step onto the race track. The museum includes one racer's Bermuda shorts and a mounted 55-pound rockfish caught by driver Tiny Lund in 1963.
