Daytona Beach, FL — Until the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America Museum reopens, you can get a glimpse of it through a three-minute video preview created by Thomas R. Miller Photography and unveiled May 1.
“The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America Museum is the only place in the world that honors and showcases achievers in every form of motorsports, including Stock Cars, Open Wheel, Drag Racing, Motorcycles, Sports Cars, Powerboats, Aviation and more,” said MSHFA President George Levy. “So our museum is the only place where you’ll see an incredible array of vehicles and artifacts representing all of those disciplines in one place.”
The MSHFA’s inductees are the best of the best from every category, selected by the best in a straight vote among 200 experts, many of them inductees themselves. Regular voters include Parnelli Jones, Mario Andretti, Don Garlits, David Hobbs, Don Prudhomme, Chip Ganassi, Richard Petty, Bob Tullius, Richard Childress and many more.
Among the jewels of the museum are the Blue Bird land speed record warrior of 1994 inductee Sir Malcolm Campbell, the four-engine Challenger I of 1990 inductee Mickey Thompson, and the 1979 Can-Am Champion Lola-Chevrolet 2020 inductee Jacky Ickx drove to the title.
The museum’s memorabilia includes an autograph book thought by Dale Earnhardt Jr. to be the only artifact in the world signed by him, his father and his grandfather.
