Motorsports Park Leaps Another Hurdle

On March 1st the local Planning and Zoning Commission approved our request to rezone 405 acres for the NCM Motorsports Park project.  This was a major accomplishment. To date, we have completed a feasibility study, Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, Wetlands Jurisdiction Determination and a Traffic Study.  All of these supported our site as an excellent location for the Motorsports Park.

The last week of March we will begin executing our options on the additional 114 acres, giving us 184 acres for the first phase of the Park, which will include a 2.94 mile road course and paddock, a 10-acre auto cross/skid pad area and a control tower/administration building.

We are still in search of title and major sponsors for the Park, and appreciate all of you who have pledged your support through our "One Acre Club" program. If you haven't yet joined this elite group, please consider doing so as our project will soon be on the fast track! Learn more about our plans online here.

Museum Assisting in Tornado Relief

The Corvette community is about more than just cars... it's also about philanthropy and supporting those in need. After the wave of tornados hit and devastated many communities in Kentucky, our Corvette family has come forward, asking how to help.

The Museum is working with local groups to collect items which will be delivered directly to those in need. Suggested items include baby diapers, food, formula and wipes; canned and packaged ready to eat food; flashlights and batteries; cleaning products, trash bags, work boots, work gloves and latex gloves, toiletries, hygiene items, underwear, socks, laundry detergent, kerosene heaters, fuel jugs, tarps, bungee cords, buckets, shovels.

The area is also in need of cash and volunteers. If you are willing to donate or help out, click here to signup. This website also has a list of agencies that can accept cash donations online.
