Talladega Superspeedway Alabama
Although unrelated to NASCAR, the nearby Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum is a common excursion for motor buffs visiting the area. Founded by local businessman George Barber, who restored and raced Porsches in the 1960s and ’70s, the non-profit museum traces the history of the motorcycle through a stunning array of more than 1,000 machines.
The hands-down favourite? A replica of the Harley-Davidson from the classic 1969 film Easy Rider. Next to the museum is the lovely Barber Motorsports Park, a winding 2.3-mile road course used for motorcycle and historic sports car races and home to schools and clubs such as the Porsche Driving Experience.
