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.
The NCM Motorsports Park was built by the donations of Corvette enthusiasts across the country and it sits just across the highway from the National Corvette Museum and the Bowling Green Assembly Plant where new Corvettes are built. The new park joins a list of legendary racing facilities who have also been recognized like last year’s winner, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
“We are honored to receive this award on behalf of motorsports enthusiasts. The NCM Motorsports Park is designed to be a world class facility and serve as a destination for corporate events, driver training and education, and recreational car and bike devotees,” said Mitch Wright, General Manager of the NCM Motorsports Park.
“This track will complement the activities of the National Corvette Museum,” says Wendell Strode, Executive Director of National Corvette Museum. “Many Corvette owners travel annually to Bowling Green, Kentucky and this track will provide another reason to enjoy the area.”
“The NCM Motorsports Park is the next generation venue that meets the needs of automotive manufacturers and after-market performance entities. Having a facility that is close to the Corvette assembly plant provides a unique opportunity for performance research and development.” said Tim Frost the organizer of the event.
