NASCAR diecast: Where it All Began

An hour North of Atlanta, just when the highways begin to resemble roads rather than a packed NASCAR starting grid, but before you reach the southern Appalachians, you’ll find an unexpectedly important part of NASCAR history. Dawsonville, the North Georgia suburb and one-time hub for moonshiners, is home to the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame, a museum and awards organization dedicated to history makers in stock car, NASCAR and oval track racing from it’s origins to the present-day.

NASCAR has always spawned great diecast, and the GRHOF has displays showing some of the best over the years, with cars from a variety of brands and throughout stock-car racing’s past. Check out these pictures and take in all the oil and moonshine soaked history.
