As an incentive to new members and to thank our hard working current members, this year’s One+One Campaign features a drawing for several gifts and prizes. Each time you recruit a new member, both you and he or she will be entered to win.

If everyone would set a goal to recruit just one more, it will help us reach our very ambitious goals! The promotion is ending on Saturday, April 27 (NCM Bash) and prize drawings will be held - including a 2-day Bondurant Z06 Driving Experience; your car showcased in NCM’s rotating display; golf package; free hexagon brick and more!

GM Celebration of Automobiles

The 3rd Annual Celebration of Automobiles, sponsored by SPEEDTV and Gladiator GarageWorks, is scheduled for May 9 – 11 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. There will be approximately 200 vehicles displayed and competing for honors during the Celebration, and applications are still being taken for vehicles.  This year’s judged show will feature cars manufactured from 1910 – 1970, with a spotlight on European marques and Brass Era vehicles.

This has become a can’t miss event and the weekend’s activities continue to grow.  Returning popular events include a golf outing Thursday, May 9, track laps and the Racers Party/Welcome Reception at the IMS Hall of Fame Museum on Friday, May 10, and the Awards Gala featuring Legendary Indianapolis 500 Mile Race winner and COA Honorary Head Judge, Mario Andretti, Saturday evening, May 11.  An exciting new addition to the weekend is a round-trip scenic driving tour to Terre Haute, with lunch at Hulman & Company on Friday, May 10.

Detailed information and the entry form may be found online at

The entry fee is $100.00 per car owner and as it is very close to the entry deadline, entrants are encouraged to submit their registration form as quickly as possible.

First FIVE Acre Club Member

Dedicate-A-Tree ProgramE. Pierce, Marshall, Jr.

E. Pierce Marshall, Jr. of Dallas, TX is a self-proclaimed Corvette Junky as well as a proud Lifetime member of the National Corvette Museum. Having grown up with a father who also had a great love for America’s Sports Car, Pierce currently owns a total of 11 Corvettes.  A supporter of the museum since its opening in 1994, Pierce has been purchasing our Corvette Raffle tickets for several years, often 15 at a time! This dedication finally paid off in November of 2011 when his winning ticket #181 was drawn in our raffle for a Build-Your-Own 2012 ZR1 Corvette. Pierce knew as soon as he won that he wanted to order a 2012 Centennial Edition ZR1, which is exactly what he did.

In addition to his many Corvette Raffle ticket purchases, Pierce also became a One Acre Club member, writing a check on the day that he picked up his new ZR1. After seeing the progress that the NCM Motorsports Park project has made over the last year since his initial donation, Pierce recently decided to up the ante and become our very FIRST and only FIVE Acre Club member! We spoke with him recently about his generous contribution; please click here for the full interview!
