Construction on the National Corvette Museum’s highly anticipated Motorsports Park is in full stride, with nearly all the asphalt for the 3.15-mile road course having recently been laid down. The NCM has had plans to build a motorsports facility for quite some time, so were sure they were absolutely elated when they spotted the pavers stamping down the base layer for their track.
To build the park, the NCM has relied heavily on sponsorships and donations. They asked Corvette fans and enthusiasts to donate asphalt at $100 a ton and also set up the “One Acre Club” fundraising campaign. This campaign allowed for NCM fans to buy one acre of land for the park, who would then be considered part of the “One Acre Club” and will be among the first people to get a ride around the track during its grand opening, set for August 27-30. One Acre Club members will also receive other perks related to the NCM Motorsports Park.
