[PICS] Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park Breaks Ground on the Holley Control Tower


The Holley Control Tower at the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park should be ready for use in eight to nine months.

That was the word Thursday as the NCM, community leaders, Holley Performance Products, and the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce held an enthusiastic groundbreaking ceremony for the project.

Enthusiasts can look forward to seeing the 14,635-square-foot tower’s meeting rooms, administrative offices, a track retail space, 2,000-square-foot viewing deck, and classrooms when the $1.8 million project is completed.
