Doug Fehan Joins One Acre Club

Back in April when Corvette Racing Program Manager Doug Fehan spoke in front of a group of Museum donors, he raised $90,000 for the NCM Motorsports Park before the night was through. He was genuinely moved by everyone’s generosity, but not surprised by the response.

“I was speaking extemporaneously and never thought that it would happen like that, but buried in each person who supports the Museum is this passion to see this Motorsports Park happen. They know that this isn’t just about laying asphalt. This is about leaving a legacy.”

Doug isn’t just a fundraiser but a donor himself. “We at Corvette Racing are a part of this Motorsports Park on so many levels, but at the end of the day, we’ve got to move the needle up and get it done. Throughout my years in the modern era of Corvette Racing, I’ve collected lots of memorabilia, which has huge sentimental and monetary value. I’ve donated all of those things to the Museum with the express purpose of it being auctioned to fund acres of the Motorsports Park. In the coming months people will get the opportunity to own true pieces of Corvette Racing history and in doing so, those funds will get applied to the building of this legacy.”

He thinks that it’s important for those who give to become fundraisers themselves, encouraging the people around them to get involved too. “We who are privileged to be able to give can inspire others to do the same. In fact, I’m issuing a challenge right here and now for all of the people getting this eNews blast to show their support of Corvette Racing, the Museum, and Corvette’s legacy by hitting the ‘donate now’ button and give just $10 to the NCM Motorsports Park project. Don’t wait! Do it right now while you are thinking about it. Let’s show everyone how the Corvette community gets it done.”

Fireball Run Making Pit Stop at NCM

Next Thursday, September 29 the National Corvette Museum will play host to a very special group of people.

The Chevrolet Fireball Run is an eight-day adventure rally race to raise awareness in the search for missing children. The entire Chevrolet Fireball Run fleet and team members will make a stop in Bowling Green where they will be greeted by the folks from the National Corvette Museum and treated to a light lunch.

Over 40+ teams are participating in this excursion which began in Melbourne, Fla., and will conclude in Gulfport, Miss. On the fifth-day of their journey, all Fireball Run teams, including Daytona 500 Winner and NASCAR legend Geoff Bodine and Astronaut Winston Scott, will make their way to the National Corvette Museum to continue their mission of distributing flyers announcing the search of their designated missing child. Read more on our blog here.
