From exploring the roots of NASCAR to putting your own pedal to the metal, Dawsonville and Dawson County are all about the roar of the engines. If you’re in Dawson County for any length of time, you’ll quickly find that our history of moonshine running during Prohibition nearly 100 years ago grew into today’s NASCAR racing, best embodied by Bill Elliott, better known as “Awesome Bill from Dawsonville.”

Georgia Racing Hall of Fame
Learn about the history of stock car racing and prominent members of Georgia's racing heritage. Vintage race cars are on display outside and in, including the first NASCAR race car driven by Bill Elliott, moonshine cars, a car driven by the late Casey Elliott, the car owned by Raymond Parks and driven by Lloyd Seay, and the Gober Sosebee '39 Ford, which won Daytona no fewer than three times. "Saturday Night Drive-In Theatre” is a themed exhibit where you can sit in old cars to watch a movie.
