Today marks a new partnership for two performance organizations that both happen to call Bowling Green, Kentucky home.
Holley Performance Products and the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park today announced the sponsorship of the track’s control tower and event center.
The two-level Holley Control Tower and Event Center will mimic the look of the National Corvette Museum and construction is slated to begin sometime in 2015.
Holley has been based in Bowling Green since 1951 and today they employ over 250 people who make the company’s award-winning line of carbs, fuel injection systems and other high performance products. In addition to its carburetors and fuel injection units being found under the hood of many classic Corvettes, Holley has also powered every NASCAR team since the 1960′s.
“It is only fitting that two great American motorsport brands like Corvette and Holley unite with our sponsorship of the NCM Motorsports Park,” said Trevor Wiggins, Holley VP of Sales. “This track is going to secure Bowling Green’s identity as a motorsports town and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
The overall structure will contain 12,600 total square feet and includes meeting and classroom space, a lobby/retail area, catering kitchen, reception office, administration offices as well as the race control room. The two-story building will boast a open-air viewing deck and a Winner’s Circle Podium is planned for the paddock side of the buidling.
“We have been talking to Holley since we first announced that we were building a Motorsports Park and they were as excited as we were,” said Mitch Wright, General Manager of the NCM Motorsports Park. “Those conversations grew into something bigger and we are thrilled to have them on board.”
