Holidays at the Hall, gift ideas, a new must-see exhibit and more

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (Dec. 3, 2014) – The NASCAR Hall of Fame is revving up for the season with exciting, one-of-a-kind gift ideas and family-friendly fun throughout December. Guests can steer the family to the NASCAR Hall of Fame to enjoy a jam-packed lineup of high-octane adventures during Holidays at the Hall, including a day of ice skating at WBT Holiday on Ice. While at the Hall, guests can stock up on the ultimate gift for the motorsports fan in the family with NASCAR Hall of Fame memberships and tickets to the historic Class of 2015 Induction Ceremony on Friday, Jan. 30.

HOLIDAYS AT THE HALL
WBT Holiday on Ice (Through Sunday, Jan. 4)
WBT Holiday on Ice brings an outdoor ice skating rink to the heart of Uptown on the NASCAR Hall of Fame Plaza. Perfect for families, romantic dates or fun outings with friends, WBT Holiday on Ice has become a beloved holiday tradition in Charlotte. Open now through Jan. 4, lace up those skates to glide along more than 7,000 square feet of ice with an incredible view of the city skyline. Admission to WBT Holiday on Ice is $10 if you bring your own skates and $13 with skate rentals.

Montgomery Gentry Concert (Sunday, Dec. 7)
Kentucky country duo Montgomery Gentry will rock the Great Hall during a special free concert dedicated to the military serving our country on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 4 p.m. The first 625 people (military personnel and their guests) will be admitted free of charge via “priority viewing” tickets directly in front of the stage. These military tickets will be distributed via WSOC-FM on site beginning at 2:30 p.m. and are available first come, first served. Non-military individuals with NASCAR Hall of Fame tickets that day will also be admitted to the concert.
