Handling the history at NASCAR’s sparkling Hall
By Sam Boykin It was February 2009, and Michele Leopold had just started her new job as the registrar and collections manager for the NASCAR Hall of Fame when she received an urgent call. The first artifact had arrived, she was told, and she needed to get down to the exhibit hall pronto, which was still just a construction site at the time. “It was my first day,” Leopold said, “and I was all excited.” She was expecting to find a rare stock car or perhaps a prized racing trophy. Instead, she arrived to find giant riggers lifting onto the hall’s second floor a 53-foot transporter, which is used to ship stock cars and also serves as a race team’s base of operations. “I’m like, ‘No, really? This is our first artifact?’ I knew I was in for something different.”
