While the National Corvette Museum’s sinkhole that swallowed eight Corvettes earlier this year may be the darling of your social media news feeds, the forthcoming Motorsports Park is arguably the museum’s more important news story to enthusiasts.
With the park set to open late next month, the museum recently announced that the $25 million dollar, 184-acre Motorsports Park’s control tower will be sponsored by performance parts manufacturer Holley.
“This is a huge opportunity for us and the [c]ommunity [and] we are proud to have this facility in our back yard,” Holley’s vice president of sales Trevor Wiggins said. As SCI notes the relationship between Corvette and Holley goes back to 1964 when “Holley four barrel carburetors were factory installed on…Corvette 327 engines.”
The control tower itself, will not be built until 2015; however, it will reportedly have two floors with “space allocated for retail services, restrooms, race control, classrooms, offices and a viewing deck.”
