DeLongs Donate 2nd Corvette

On May 27, with their Corvette family watching from all over the country on the Museum's web cams, Delivery Team Member Doug Johnson dropped the fob to a new 2014 Stingray into Dor DeLong's hand as her husband, Jack DeLong, dropped the keys of their 1992 Corvette into Museum Executive Director Wendell Strode's hands. The DeLongs decided to donate their prized Corvette while taking R8C Museum Delivery of their new "C7."

"This car is a special car to Dor and I," Jack said. "It was a gift that we gave to ourselves when we reached a point in life where we could really enjoy it. It was the first car we ever took to the Museum, and the first car that we took back to its birthplace at the Assembly Plant. We put many thousands of miles on this car going to countless NASCAR races, club events and road tours, making memories every mile along the way."

Read the full story about their donation on our blog here. If you have been thinking about donating your car and would like more info, click here.

Motorsports Park Paving Begins

The guard rail installation is well underway and paving officially began on Tuesday with the first layer of the full 3 miles being completed today. The run-offs will be paved starting later today and tomorrow, and then a high polymer modified liquid asphalt mix will top it beginning next week. The complete process is expected to be finished by late June. Check out this video of the paving process on our YouTube here. And even if you are not on Facebook, you can still see the images we've shared of the progress being made, and aerial images of the track online here!

If you've not yet contributed to our Motorsports Park, we still need your help. You can purchase a "ton of asphalt" for $100, and every little bit helps. Donate online here.
