CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Attendance at the NASCAR Hall of Fame fell in October by 30 percent compared with the same month in 2010.

Attendance in October was 19,340. A year ago it was 27,555.

Attractions like the NASCAR hall often see second-year attendance drops.

Due to cost-cutting measures, the hall made a small surplus for the month of $43,089. The hall also receives money from the city of Charlotte for some maintenance items on the hall, which raised its surplus for the month to $89,657.

For the first four months of the fiscal year, hall attendance is 71,007 compared with 100,991 through the first four months of last fiscal year.

For the first four months of the fiscal year, the hall lost $406,659. But the city's reimbursement for maintenance items closed that deficit to $202,495.
