There's nothing like NASCAR

Using the word "Car" to describe a NASCAR race car, simply does not do justice to how and what these "Machines" represent.  The industry doesn't even refer to one who "drives" these cars as a driver, but rather a pilot.  With speeds reaching well over 200mph durring last weeks Michigan International Speedway practice run, it's easy to see why.

Farewell Porsche, Hello Nascar!

It was an exciting morning as I pulled up to the Museum to see the transport trailers lined up and ready for unloading.  However it wasn't the trailers that were exciting me, it was the race cars within that had our hearts racing! 

But when I walked inside, I was struck with a bit of grief as the final Porsche was being pushed ever so carefully out the garage door.  The Porsche's welcomed me to this wonderful place several months ago, and I have to admit I was sad to see them go.  The floor was now empty, the banners and flair had all been taken down, and our canvas was clean and ready for some color! 

One by one the NASCAR race cars made their way.  It was somewhat strange to have these powerfully loud vehicles silently rolled in!  They are massive machines, built with a meticulous understanding and attention to detail for the many laws of science.  The evolution of these cars and the NASCAR sport is laid out right in front of you as you walk through our exhibit.  I am proud to have lent my two hands, along side the many others, who made "Moonshine to Millionaires" come to life!
