"Just in time for the 10th Anniversary tributes to Winston Cup racing champion Alan Kulwicki, Larry and Pam Bean have moved their famous Thunderbird race car to the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame Museum in Mooresville, NC.

Named the "UNDERBIRD" by Alan Kulwicki, this 1992 Winston Cup Hooter's race car, which he drove in the Hooter's 500 in Atlanta to win the 1992 Winston Cup Championship title, had been meticulously restored by Larry Bean to that race. Fans will find this car is the real thing… and a fitting tribute to Alan Kulwicki's legacy as a true racing champion.

The UNDERBIRD's "new nest" is a wonderful museum filled with cars from racing's past, and memories of great drivers and racing teams. We are proud to have the UNDERBIRD on display for racing fans to admire, and remember Alan Kulwicki. Visit the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame Museum, and enjoy the racing history! "

UPDATE: Contrary to some reports the #7 Underbird will NOT be at the track or do the victory lap, the car that will do the Polish victory lap is a 2nd #11 Hooters Memorial Ford [2003 model, not 1992]. Kulwicki's real race car sits at Larry and Pam Bean's home in Daytona, staged for transport to a new display at the North Carloina Auto Racing Hall of Fame in Mooresville, NC [Jayski was there in Dec 2002, what a great place] and the Bean's were not invited to participate in the Bristol ceremonies.(3-23-2003)
