Bloomington Gold’s fall event in Charlotte will once again take place at the sprawling Hendrick Motorsports complex. In addition to being surrounded by years of NASCAR history, attendees will be able to participate in Bloomington Gold Certification, the Gold Collection, and more.

The show will also pay tribute to the late Jim Perkins. Perkins was a well-known executive at General Motors whose career spanned 6 decades throughout the auto industry. He is widely regarded as having saved the Corvette brand from the dumpster in the early 1990’s all while reinventing Chevrolet at the same time. From there he went on to become CEO of the Hendrick Automotive Group after his retirement from General Motors. He’s also a member of the Corvette Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Bloomington Gold Great Hall.
