NCM Motorsports Park is Racing Forward

This August a moment you have all been waiting for will arrive... the moment to take a lap around our new track! Our 20th Anniversary Celebration will offer FREE parade laps at the park for registered event attendees, plus a Chevrolet Ride and Drive (with free rides in a Stingray around the track) and the opportunity for Hot Laps around the track with VIP drivers like Andy Pilgrim and John Heinricy.

We will be updating the schedule and adding more details soon, but for now you can bookmark this page.

Speaking of the track, we will be looking to acquire some rolling stock (think service vehicles). If you have or know of anyone looking to make a tax deductible donation here's our wish list:

  • (2) Long Bed, 2500 or 3500 Gas Truck Crew Cabs
  • (2) Side by Sides or ATVs
  • (1) Ambulance
  • (2) 12' or 16' Open Flatbed Utility Trailers
  • (2) Gas 1500 Truck Long or Short Bed (V6 or V8)
  • (1) 22' Rollback
  • (1) Track Ops/Pace Car
  • (1) 12-15 Passenger Van
  • (2+) 4 Door Sedans
  • (1) Open Car Trailer

While GM products are preferred we are open to discussing any vehicles you may be interested in donating! Questions? Please contact Track Operations Manager Matt Busby at 270-467-8802.

Limited Edition Skydome Art Available

After our February 12 sinkhole, many friends and business partners came forward offering their help. One such business was Corvette Store Partner CarArt Work, who design and created a unique metal Skydome art piece for the Museum to use as a fundraiser. This is a limited edition piece with only 100 available. The art can be secured by making a $250 tax-deductible donation to the Museum's sinkhole relief fund.

To secure your Skydome art piece, click here, then select the "Sinkhole (CarArt Work)" option, and make your donation for $250. Thanks to everyone for your support!

Skydome Sinkhole Tour Schedule

This Friday and Saturday, May 16-17, the Skydome will again be open for "sinkhole viewing" during normal business hours (8am-5pm CT). Children must be age 8 or older to enter. The sinkhole viewing is included with your regular Museum tour admission.

Beginning Thursday, May 22 we will open the Skydome up for sinkhole viewing on a regular basis during normal business hours. We will continue to offer this daily until construction resumes (July or after). As construction plans are decided on and finalized we will let you know!

Pictured: NASCAR Team Owner and Chevrolet Dealer Rick Hendrick visited the Museum yesterday so of course we had to ask him what he thought about his visit. His response? "Tell Kevin [Helmintoller, donor of the Mallett Hammer] I was thinking about buying this car until I saw the Carfax."
