So, maybe we jumped the gun a bit when reporting that the National Corvette Museum had figured out what the plans were for the sinkhole because now, like a one-to-four skip-shift, they’re switching gears.
The National Corvette Museum is putting the final touches on the $17-million Motorsports Park, which is scheduled to hold its grand opening on August 28.
Now it’s official. The National Corvette Museum will be preserving the sinkhole that continues to keep people flocking to the Kentucky facility in droves just to see the darn thing.
Personally, I’ve had a tough enough time swallowing the idea that some of the damaged Corvettes might be left on display there in Kentucky, but preserving the sinkhole for a few extra ticket sales seems a bit much.
More than 1,000 Corvette enthusiasts turned out at the National Corvette Museum to help celebrate the announcement of Michelin’s tire sponsorship of the new NCM Motorsports Park. The global company, which has had a rich history with Corvette over the past decade, has inked a three-year deal with the Museum that will include product displays and three major events at the new race track.
