OBX Shipping Center in Kill Devil Hills celebrates its 10th anniversary Wednesday-Thursday, Sept. 25-26, with free events geared for the whole family.

Into NASCAR? They've got you covered. Joe Gibbs Racing's FedEx No. 11 NASCAR race car will be on-site from 1 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday.

Like free stuff and winning prizes? Check, and check. In addition to a chance to get up close to a real NASCAR race car, there will be door prizes, a coloring contest for kids, popcorn and drinks, opportunities to snap free photos with the car, and more.

The family store is operated by mother-son duo Judy Hahs and her son TJ Hahs, bassist with SoulONE. The OBX Shipping Center will also announce scholarships for two local high school graduates, Class of 2020. The scholarships are in memory of Jennifer Wall, Judy Hahs' daughter, who managed the shipping center for several years. Wall, who was married to Jason Wall and was the mother of two young children, lost her 3-year cancer battle on Nov. 20, 2018. She was 36.

OBX Shipping Center & OBX Transit is located at 101 Airstrip Road and U.S. Highway 158 (the bypass at milepost 9), Kill Devil Hills.
