Speedway Motors Museum Of American Speed or Smith Collection Museum of American Speed:

Founded in 1992 by "Speedy Bill and Joy Smith, the "Speedway Motors Museum of American Speed" is dedicated to preserving, interpreting and displaying physical items significant in racing and automotive history. The museum is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) private foundation and currently encompasses more than 150,000 ft.² over three levels. The vast collection resulted from the Smiths personal involvement in racing and hot rodding for more than six decades, and their lifelong passion for collecting and preserving historic automotive artifacts.

Millions of hours were spent, as Bill put it, "turning over rocks and chasing countless leads" to assemble a collection of this magnitude. As a result, museum visitors will witness a stunning array of history-making cars, engines, parts, toys and memorabilia. You'll see countless rare and one-of-a-kind items, all presented in beautiful displays and dioramas that will make you feel like you've taken a step back into the past!
