A 3,500 square foot structure was constructed between the two buildings to tie it all together. Inside, there are 47 race vehicles (46 cars and one NASCAR Truck) and a tractor-trailer transporter rig. Of those 46 race cars, 22 are black No. 3 GM Goodwrench Chevrolet Monte Carlos or Luminas driven by Dale Earnhardt. There are also all six of the No. 3 special paint scheme cars that Earnhardt competed in The Winston with from 1995-2000, and a 1987 No. 3 Wrangler Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
