Corvette Museum eyes possible motorsports park

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - The National Corvette Museum is eyeing a possible motorsports park and plans to begin meeting with
potential sponsors for the facility.
Museum executive director Wendell Strode told The Bowling Green
Daily News a motorsports park could bring as 100,000 more visitors
to Bowling Green each year.
A Chicago consulting company, I.E.G., has recommended that the
proposed complex have three major sponsors somewhere in the range
of $700,000 each over five years and 10 official sponsors that
would contribute $125,000 each over five years.
Strode said the first to be sought will be a naming sponsor, the
rights to which would total $10 million to $15 million over a
20-year period.
"We are just in the final stages of getting those
recommendations back," said Strode, who noted that they may
change.
Strode said they hope to break ground for the park in 2011.
