Ride or Drive Experience
Put the adrenaline junkies on your list behind the wheel of a real stock car, dragster, Indy or exotic sports car. Nothing will compare to strapping in and speeding off like the stars at Charlotte Motor Speedway and zMAX Dragway.
Sam Bass Art Studio
Each year, Sam Bass Art Studio creates new work that captures the colorful intensity of racing. The NASCAR artist’s signature style brings life to prints, die cast cars and more with his awe-inspiring illustrations.
Ritchie Hill Bakery
Claiming a mighty nice blend of cheddar and spice, cheese straws from Ritchie Hill are baked fresh in small batches every day. Nothing else tastes quite as good as 100 years of hometown family tradition.
Dale Earnhardt Plaza
Honor the diehard race fan in your family with a commemorative brick at the Dale Earnhardt Plaza. Engraved pavers allow your message to become a permanent part of this tribute to a NASCAR legend.
Rocky River Vineyards
This family-owned vineyard produces some of the sweetest award-winning wine in North Carolina. Make this a go-to gift option or share a bottle and create new memories to treasure.
Southern Grace Moonshine
In early 2015, the distillers at Southern Grace began crafting small batch spirits in Historic Downtown Concord. Now housed inside former Cabarrus Correctional Facility, Southern Grace is a setting you won’t soon forget, and Sun Dog 130 Moonshine is a gift that will spark stories of motorsports heritage and days gone by.
