Tornado Closes Corvette Assembly Plant
NCM Motorsports Park closed

As I am sure you already know, a number of tornadoes swept through portions of six states in the Midwest and Southern U.S. over the weekend. One of the twisters landed in Kentucky and traversed over 200 miles on the ground, killing more than 50 people. The storms also made their presence felt at the Corvette Action Center and the GM Bowling Green Assembly Plant that builds the Chevrolet Corvette. All the plant employees are safe at both locations, but the damage is bad enough to the assembly plant to stop production for at least a week. The National Corvette Museum did not suffer any reported damage and is open as normal. The damage to the NCM Motorsports Park is substantial and will be closed for an unknown period at this time.
The plant and museum appear to have fared better compared to the wider Bowling Green area.
The International Motor Racing Research Center (IMRRC) will be giving away this Red Mist 2021 Corvette Stingray Convertible on December 21st and there are just a few days remaining to get your tickets. The winner of the Corvette will also receive a racing prize package with a complimentary overnight stay when you take delivery, plus two 2022 memberships to the Jack Daniels Club at Watkins Glen race track to watch IMSA, NASCAR, and other races, plus a two-day Corvette Owners School course at the Ron Fellows Performance Driving School at Spring Mountain. Help the IMRRC’s mission to collect, share, and preserve the history of Motorsports. The deadline to enter is December 21st so make a donation today.
