On Saturday, February 1st, 2014, the NASCAR Hall of Fame will host its first-ever Fan Appreciation Day, offering fans unlimited access to the special attraction free of charge. The full-day event will feature autograph and Q&A sessions with current drivers and NASCAR Hall of Famers.

Drivers Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin and Greg Biffle headline a group of more than 20 drivers scheduled to attend the event; several NASCAR Hall of Famers, including Class of 2014 inductees Jack Ingram, Dale Jarrett and Maurice Petty, will also be on hand.

Fans will have free access to the Hall on a first-come, first-served basis in lieu of needing a ticket. Fans will, however, need to secure free tickets for the driver autograph sessions in advance at, where they can also find schedules and more details about NASCAR Fan Appreciation Day.

Fans will be able to check out the revamped Glory Road, new Gen-6 racing simulators, a 2014 champions exhibit and a new Memorable Moments exhibit highlighting recent NASCAR milestones. Fans will be among the first to see the new Hall of Honor exhibit featuring artifacts from the Class of 2014, which will open Thursday, January 30th.

“Our sport is unique in many ways, starting with our fans – the most loyal fans in all of sports,” said NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France. “Any successes we have start with our fans, which is why we always look for opportunities to ‘give back.’ NASCAR Fan Appreciation Day is one of those opportunities, with the added benefit of building excitement for the upcoming Daytona 500 thanks to the combination of current and past NASCAR stars coming together.”
