Daytona International Speedway to be New Home of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America

NOVI, MI and DAYTONA BEACH, FL – Two of the greatest names in racing soon will share the same address. The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America, motor racing's Cooperstown, announced today that it will move its operations and collection of historic racing machines and memorabilia from the Detroit area to the "World Center of Racing," Daytona International Speedway by January 2016.

Podium with Speyer, Chitwood, Watson Al Speyer (MSHFA Trustee), Joie Chitwood III (DIS President) and Ron Watson (MSHFA President) announce the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America will be moving to Daytona International Speedway.

The move coincides with the scheduled January 2016 completion of DAYTONA Rising, the speedway's $400 million frontstretch renovation project currently underway.

Plans call for the Hall of Fame's displays featuring cars, images, stories and bronze sculptures of 209 icons of American motorsports to be located in the Daytona International Speedway Ticket and Tours Building, which was formerly known as the "DAYTONA 500 Experience."

Vehicles and artifacts representative of the diversity of motorized competition celebrated by the Hall of Fame, including Open Wheel, Stock Cars, Motorcycles, Aviation, Drag Racing, Sports Cars and Powerboats, will be exhibited as a regular part of the tours admission at Daytona International Speedway all year long.
