The NASCAR hall of fame is offering a short term "discount" admission for Carolina's residents. "Only" $15.95 for adults, $14.95 for seniors and $9.95 for kids. ARE You sheeting me? dISCOUNT? I recommend free lifetime passes for anyone within the tax jurisdiction the has paid for this albatross. Any active sports participant inducted into any hall of fame is a blatant marketing ploy to get a free celebrity appearance. Re:: Harvik's induction nto his hometown hall of fame. From History channel: Johnny Morris "mother store" and museum have 4X the annual visitors as the St. Louis Arch.

Same, but different, Nova.

NASCAR HOF, one would assume, is a facility in recognition of a sport and its significant participants. HD Museum (been there) is a history, primarily, of a product.

That said, both are expected to be able to support their own expenses, hence the admission fees

Kermitta will appear in two Superbowl commercials, which, according to Steve Phelps, NASCAR chief marketing officer, is great for NASCAR.

Fart.

@ Jack K: when does spring break trafiic start up? I need out of here!

Beside the Stewart Haas and Tommy Baldwin Racing nonsense, let's not forget about the Red Bull owners points. Surely up for auction to someone come Daytona.

I like what you say Pond,,a loy of things should be discounted for certain ages,,especially mine,,LOL

Spring break is year round down here. It was 74 degrees at 8 A.M. today.

The taxpayer gets it in the neck for most of these deals. We have three NFL teams in Florida, all three get tax breaks, yet they black out games locally. One politician is pushing for a ban on blackouts if they accept ANY taxpayer money. Don't get me started on the Marlins, they couldn't draw flies on a day they gave away tacos and they get millions for a ball park.

Don't get me started on the outrageous baseball salaries, for a game that might require a total of ten minutes of exersion for seven of nine players

I got my AARP membership package in the mail last week!!! OH JOY!

Don't get too excited, about all I have ever benefited from is some decent travel discounts, and even then, it was a matter of convenience since most places offer the same discints to many groups, just that aarp is pretty universal. Mostly, AARP is a PAC
