Visiting the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing York Springs, Pennsylvania #dirttracking #visitpa #travel #sprintcars


Living in New Jersey has it's perks.  I am surrounded by beautiful mountains and close to the ocean.  Not only that, but I am 10 minutes from NYC, and less than 2 hours from PA and CT.

When I am not down the shore, you can usually catch me and my husband at the races.  One of our very first dates was at a little 3/4 midget track in Pinebrook, NJ.  The track no longer exists, but the memories I have of it will last forever.

We recently visited the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing , a usual stop for us when in the Williams Grove, Pennsylvania area.  We visit so often, they know us by name. The museum is free of charge and packed with lots of racing history. This year, there is a new building addition that has been added to the museum.  When I walked inside the new building, my jaw dropped.  There, on the wall, in all of it's glory, was the sign from Pinebook.  I admit I got a little teary eyed when I saw it.  It truly was a grand site to see.




Over the years it has been nice seeing the museum grow.  The exhibits are always updating and there is so much racing history to see.  Here is a little video I made to give you an idea of what you can find at the museum.




This video only shows a small part of the museum.  There is so much more!  Be sure to visit the museum when you are in the Pennsylvania area!

If you've never been to the museum before, you should check it out.  It is located in York Springs, Pa. at the Latimore Valley Fairgrounds.  It is a hop, skip and jump from Gettysburg.

The staff of volunteers are very friendly and eager to give you a tour of this grand museum.  There are group tours available and occasional events as well.
