[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.

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.

Patience is a virtue, except of course when it comes to fixing up your hot rod.

We who have restored old cars know we want everything done on our favorite ride…yesterday.

It usually doesn’t work out that way for the ordinary enthusiast, however, I’ve been working on my dad’s 1970 Impala for eight years and still don’t have it completely done.

The first Corvette to compete in a race at the National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park made a very good showing over the weekend.

Team Braunschweig, out of Minnesota, decided to make the trip to compete in the World Racing League’s season opener in Bowling Green on Saturday, making their No. 117 C5 the only Corvette to compete against 21 other teams in the GP1 class.

Well that didn’t take long.

The National Corvette Museum’s Motorsports Park has only officially been open for about four months in 2014, but that was long enough for the racing industry to take notice of the new race track in Bowling Green, KY.

At the Performance Racing Industry’s trade show in Indianapolis, the NCM Motorsports Park was recognized with the “Outstanding Facility of the Year” award which was presented by the the National Speedway Directory and Track Guide.
