Goodson Appointed to National Sprint Car Hall of Fame Museum Board
On Thursday, Aug. 10, during the 62nd NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals, presented by Casey’s, David Goodson, President/CEO of Impact Signs Awnings Wraps, Inc., was appointed to the Board of Directors for the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum.
The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is the only museum in the world dedicated to the history of sprint car racing.
“I am extremely honored to be appointed to the Sprint Car Hall of Fame Board of Directors,” said David Goodson. “I have always been very passionate about sprint car racing, and I truly appreciate the confidence that the board and racing community has in me to serve.
Back in 1986, some sprint car racing visionaries, including the late Knoxville Raceway Promotor Ralph Capitani, Casey’s General Stores Founder Don Lamberti, sprint car builder CK Spurlock and several others who wanted to promote the future of sprint car racing and preserve the history of the sport formed the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum’s non-profit foundation.
Five years later in 1991, the museum was officially opened in turn two at the world-famous Knoxville Raceway and operates year-round seven days a week (362 days a year) for race fans to come in and learn more about sprint car racing.
An average of 30-35 open-wheel race cars are always on display; being loaned to the museum by owners and fabricators who have restored the cars. This allows the museum the ability to change displays throughout the year, giving fans a variety of open-wheel cars to enjoy on every visit. The National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is also home to 32 luxury suites for race events during the season.
Goodson joins eight other board members and will serve for a two-year term, with the option to serve an additional two years. “We are thrilled to have David Goodson on our board of directors,” stated Bob Baker, Executive Director of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum.
“David has been a long-time supporter of sprint car racing and the HOF and we are excited to have his knowledge and experience on our board as we prepare and plan for the future.”
The Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
