National Corvette Museum Receives Two Corvettes as Donation Gift


The kindness and generosity of Corvette owners is no secret.

Just look at what William (Bill) Engle Jr. – also known as “Sweat Hog” of Albany, N.Y., Ridgewood, N.J., and now Summit, N.Y. – has just done for the National Corvette Museum.

Joining the growing list of enthusiasts who have bequeathed their prized possessions to the Museum, Engle decided to donate his 1967 and 1987 Corvettes to the NCM.

The notice of violation requiring the National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park to cease all construction and events came as a surprise to NCM Executive Director Wendell Strode, who thought all the parties involved had reached an amiable understanding during a public meeting Monday.

Some neighbors of the park have expressed their concern over what they term excessive noise levels being created by the cars there, including at a planning commission meeting two weeks ago.

The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park will live up to the agreements it has signed to host special events over the next few weeks, despite receiving a notice of violation from the City-County Planning Commission of Warren County after a public meeting on Monday.

“We intend to move forward with the agreement reached at the meeting,” the NCM said in a prepared statement released Tuesday. “Therefore the NCM Motorsports Park will fulfill all contracts with our renters as well as continue construction on our planned facilities at the NCM Motorsports Park. We plan to move forward with business as usual, we will not cancel any scheduled events and will continue to book events for future years.”

One of the most supportive voices for the National Corvette Museum and its new Motorsports Park has long been the Bowling Green Daily News.

Over the past two-plus decades, the newspaper has devoted many pages of coverage about the museum and its activities, including the Motorsports Park. Sometimes that includes the negative, though, as in a story last week about some of the residents being upset with the noise levels being generated by the new park’s activities.

[VIDEO] Optima's Search for the Ultimate Street Car Visits the NCM Motorsports Park


The OPTIMA Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car made a stop earlier this month at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park in Bowling Green. This is one of the eight events that culminates in the 2015 OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in November.

If you’re not familiar with the event, drivers compete in variety of activities including an autocross and a road course. The NCM Motorsports Park offers both and so it became the third stop on the 2015 schedule.

[PICS] General Motors Shows off Restoration Progress on the 1 Millionth Corvette


General Motors Tuesday showed off their restoration progress on the 1 millionth Corvette which fell into the National Corvette Museum sinkhole in February 2014. This is the first time the car has been seen by the public since it left the museum in April of this year. They plan to have all of the work completed in time to return it to the NCM for their 21st birthday celebration Labor Day weekend.


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.

Join the Corvette Museum's Motorsports Park on Thursday for Groundbreaking of the Holley Control Tower


The National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has been packing in quite a few events since the track opened during the Museum’s Anniversary Celebration at the end of August 2014. Track events going on nearly each and every weekend hasn’t stopped the NCM from working to complete the project with the addition of several support buildings and garages.

Earlier this year, the park started construction on the Kimberlee A. Fast Pavilion as well as the Mobil 1 fueling stations. On Thursday, they will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the one of the biggest editions yet to the Motorsports Park – the addition of the Holley Control Tower and Event Center.
