NASCAR Hall gets another gem

   The NASCAR Hall of Fame set up an area at the entrance to Charlotte Motor Speedway this weekend where it has been bringing special NASCAR guests for question and answer sessions, running free shuttles from the track to the Hall and offering a glimpse to race fans to what the Hall has to offer.

   The Hall also unveiled a special NASCAR artifact for the first time, which right now can only been seen at the Hall's display at the track.

   The item - the front bumper of 2012 Hall inductee Cale Yarborough's 1977 Oldsmobile - was collected from "Tiger" Tom Pistone's auto shop. The veteran racer's collection of items date over half a century.


      The display will remain at CMS through Saturday afternoon.
