Racing Museum Update

The effort to create a museum that will capture the history of motorsports in the Northeast is progressing well. To date, nearly 70 people have contributed time, money or both to the effort.

Paid members have come from all segments of the motorsports community. They include retired and active track operators, TV personalities you see every weekend covering NASCAR, championship winning car owners, sponsors, active and retired drivers, a magazine publisher, two marina operators each with a history of owning winning race cars, writers who cover racing, and sponsors.

The Board of Directors now numbers nearly twenty and represents a cross-section of every motorsports constituency. Many of the Directors, in addition to giving of their time, have also made financial contributions to the museum project. None have been paid for their services and none has even asked to have their expenses reimbursed.

Volunteers have helped tell the museum’s story at events. There have been dozens of offers of cars, artifacts, photography, literature and other items for display.

Despite the success to date, there’s a need for more volunteers, more paid members and more artifacts to display. If you agree that the Northeast has a rich racing history that deserves to be saved, let us know how you’d like to help by sending an email to nemsmuseum@gmail.com or write us at NEMSmuseum, 7 Bayview Rd., Ipswich, MA 01938.
