With the opening of the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park just six months away, the team that will be responsible for running the park continues to grow.
This week, the Museum announced that Matt Busby has been hired as Track Operations Manager.
“I am excited to have Matt join the Motorsports Park team,” said Mitch Wright, General Manager of the park. “Matt has experience in what it takes to open a new facility, and to develop infrastructure for operations, and is very focused on customer service and building programs, which is a natural fit.”
Busby’s duties will include managing the track schedule and rentals, as well as overseeing High Performance Driver’s Education programs, managing daily track activities, and working closely with Wright on track operations.
Busby will be relocating to Bowling Green in the next few weeks from NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans. He also owns and operates a racing data acquisition company called Aevum Racing that provides race data services to club and regional users.
“I’m incredibly excited to be a part of such an extraordinary project with the Museum!” said Busby. “It’s not every day that these kinds of opportunities arise, and I feel blessed to be a part of it all.”
The Museum has also posted some renderings that show the support building for the Motorsports Park, including the control tower with meeting rooms and administrative offices, and the garages, along with sketches of the four racing configurations of the track, including Corvette Race Loop, Grand Max Straight, Grand Full Course, and West and East Circuit.

The initial phase will consist of a twin circuit arrangement of a two mile / 13 turn West course and a one mile / 10 turn East course which can be combined into multiple configurations. Both circuits will feature technical turns, straights and elevation changes. These two courses could be used independently for multiple events, or connected together into a unique large course. The track was designed with challenging features that are reminiscent of the famous course in Le Mans, France.
