NEMSM Prepares Site For Construction
After a successful groundbreaking in September, the North East Motor Sports Museum is preparing its site for construction of the building.
New England racing legend Bentley Warren loaned his D-8 bulldozer and CAT excavator for the job and both are operated by Andy Kaski. Thousands of yards of gravel have been moved to create a level footprint on which construction of the building will take place.
Board Member Dave Patten, who is overseeing the day-to-day site progress said, "We are moving forward every day. By the end of this week the entire site will be bulldozed to sub grade, ready for foundation excavation. As a lifelong motorsports enthusiast I am thrilled to contribute my time and be a part of this project."
The current projected timeline is for excavation to be completed around the start of December with foundation work to follow shortly after. Construction of the building will take place in the spring of 2016 with an anticipated grand opening in the fall of 2016.
The North East Motor Sports Museum will be located next to the south entrance of New Hampshire Motor Speedway and will be the only museum of its type in the Northeast.
