New England Motor Sports Museum

The Home of North East Motor Sports History.

The museum will open to paid members on June 10,2017, and to the general public shortly thereafter. It is nearly 10,000 square feet, the first of two planned structures at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. 2.66 acres on which the museum sits is leased from the Speedway for 90 years at $1/year. It houses race cars and motorcycles, a library and research center with 1,000 books and its bound racing magazine collection, a 25-foot long display case holding trophies won by New England drivers, an 8-foot square display case holding helmets worn by drivers on their way to major race wins and championships and thousands of photographs of racing in the northeast and vintage videos. Exhibits reflect the history of motorsports in the northeast of the United States. You are invited to contact us and join the thousands who have already helped make this museum a reality.
