High Speed Fun for All Ages

Excitement is building just up the street at the NCM Motorsports Park as our go karts have FINALLY arrived! We'll spend the next week or so testing the new track, making some adjustments to the configuration, implementing additional safety features, getting our timing system installed, staff trained and we'll be ready to open!

We have 14 karts left for sponsorship. Sponsorships are $1,000 for one year, or $2,500 for three years and includes one kart with four decals advertising your business, and 10% off one karting party per year. To secure your spot call Taylor at 270-777-4554.


























Manta Ray Memorabilia

The National Corvette Museum opened with much fanfare in 1994. On display were the best of the best, unique and rare Corvettes.


General Motors Design Chief Bill Mitchell initiated a restyled version of the earlier Mako Shark, primarily from the cockpit rearward, and the Manta Ray was born. At the time of the concept car's development, the shark-inspired 1968 Corvettes were hitting the showroom floors, and Mitchell decided some changes needed to be done.



Up for auction is the informational board that was with the 1969 Manta Ray Concept Car when it was on display at the Museum for the Grand Opening.The sign is professionally printed on plastic and was designed and created by Exhibit Works. It is royal blue with a red bar, white text and checker board ghosted pattern. Many celebrities were on hand for the opening of the Museum, including the first Corvette Chief Engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov. The sign is 25" tall by 15" wide.

Your next chance to win a Corvette is Thursday, May 11, 2017 when we raffle off a 2017 Long Beach Red Corvette Convertible! Tickets are $150 and the raffle is limited to 1,000 tickets.
