The new Rockin’ and Racin’ exhibit at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina celebrates the ongoing connection between NASCAR’s biggest stars and the world of music, from country and rock to R&B and rap. The exhibit runs for a limited time and features more than 40 artifacts, including seven cars “all the way from pit road to Music Row,” according to the Hall’s website.

The exhibit is broken into four primary areas of interest: “Racers who Rock,” “Rockers who Race,” “Rocking the Track” and “NASCAR in Song.” The seven cars on display in the exhibit are:

· 1936 Ford Sedan from Brantley Gilbert’s “Bottoms Up” video

· 1959 Corvette from Brad Paisley’s “Old Alabama” video

· 1964 Plymouth Late Model driven by country star and part-time racer Marty Robbins (restored and presented by Ray Evernham)

· 1980 No. 2 Chevrolet driven by Dale Earnhardt and sponsored by Mike Curb (Earnhardt’s first championship car)

· 2005 NASCAR Super Truck driven by Big Machine Records CEO Scott Borchetta

· 2011 Camaro from Rascal Flatt’s “Red Camaro” video

· 2012 No. 42 Chevrolet driven by Juan Pablo Montoya sponsored by Target and Taylor Swift’s “Red” CD
