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.

The National Corvette Museum’s supply of vehicles has grown by one as Randy Pierce and Charla Heintz donated their 2007 Ron Fellows Edition Corvette Z06. The pair have volunteered at the museum for years often spending a week at a time offering help wherever it’s needed. Many times they’ll be tending to the Corvette Store, but Randy also helps by picking up large donated items from around the country and delivering them to the museum.

Corvette Museum Planning ThunderDome Exhibit to Tell the Story of the Sinkhole

The National Corvette Museum continues to make lemonade out of the lemons that literally fell beneath its feet last year.

Museum officials have released details about what they’re calling “Thunderdome,” a unique multimedia experience that will allow visitors to “live through” the collapse of the Skydome floor that sent eight Corvettes falling into the bowels of the earth in February 2014.
