NASCAR Hall of Fame

NASCAR Hall of Fame

The new NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, North Carolina opened in May 2010. Lead design architect Pei, Cobb, Freed & Partners   envisioned a möbius strip-styled stainless steel roadway racing around the perimeter of the main building. Zahner engineers implemented the ZEPPS® Process to enable simple and straight-forward construction of an otherwise immensely complex shape.

The möbius is clad in Angel Hair® Stainless steel, a product developed by Zahner to reduce the glare and bright spots while providing a gorgeous satin finish. Even in bright sunlight, the surface has significantly less glare than mill finishes on stainless steel.
