Kansas Auto Racing Museum - Chapman, Kansas
The Kansas Auto Racing Museum in Chapman, Kansas is one of the projects of the Covenant Racing Team. The owners, Doug and Connie Thompson, are a Christian couple who are involved in many aspects of auto racing. In addition to the museum and the racing team, they have the Grassroots Racing Show which is available on local cable in Hays & Abilene, Jayhawk Racing Journal and Kansas Racing Products which operates out of an adjacent building.
The Kansas Auto Racing Museum is home to the first NASCAR trophy, first NHRA trophy, restored race cars, rare film footage and memorabilia highlighting racing tradition of Kansas. Much of the private museum is what you would expect from its name, Auto racing isn't an area of my personal interest, but I know that there are many people who would find it interesting. The museum is also the studio for a TV show which is broadcast on Eagle Cable Local Channel, the Grassroots Racing Show.
The Kansas Auto Racing Museum also features restored race cars from seven different eras and its own private viewing theater for race film highlights throughout the Midwest.
