The pride and joy of Bowling Green, Kentucky, is about to get a lot bigger.

The National Corvette Museum is planning to build a motorsports park and has already hired Steve Crawford, the architect behind Thunderhill Raceway Park in Willows, California, and The Ridge Motorsports Park in Shelton, Washington.

But the museum hasn't raised enough money to pay for the multimillion dollar facility, which it hopes to have running by 2014. It has $3 million cash for the land and another million for the facility. But it is currently seeking sponsors for the track, up to a $750,000 annual commitment to service the debt on a $10 million debt.

The park, complete with racetrack if all goes as planned, will serve a number of purposes including "education, recreation and training for Corvette enthusiasts," according to reporting website
