VIRTUAL TOUR


EMMR is located atop the hill at the historic Latimore Valley Fairgrounds...




As you begin to enter EMMR, it quickly becomes obvious this visit will be something special!    
Your trip back into history begins.



 



You will quickly notice that EMMR is dedicated to preserving all forms of motor racing.




Midgets from every era and type are grouped together,
demonstrating how they evolved over time.





The actual contents (tools, work benches and all) from Tommy Hinnershitz's
garage were used to create this display honoring his racing career.


    
You'll find some very unique items on display, such as these hand-crafted s of Patterson,
New Jersey's famed Gasoline Alley and Pennsylvania's legendary Williams Grove Speedway.


    
As you walk down this aisle, you'll see first hand how the early cars
progressed into today's fire-breathing Sprint Cars.



This crumpled tail section is one of the only known remaining pieces from  Ted Horn's car
after losing his life in a racing accident at the DuQuoin, IL State Fairgrounds in 1948. 
Besides being one of racing's all time greatest drivers, Horn was one of Indy's most
consistent drivers ever.  Between 1936 & 1948, Ted never finished worse than 4th in
the Indy 500...a feat that has never since been duplicated!



Several unfinished Hiram Hillegass race cars sit next to
his original parts cabinets, tools & blueprints.




From the earliest model Fords, to the Offy's, to the modern day purpose-built racing engine,
see how the science and technology of engine building has changed over the years.



Some of the most dramatic changes conceived in the pursuit of speed can be seen in
the types of cars that raced throughout the illustrious history of the Indianapolis 500.




The history of Drag Racing is also featured at EMMR.


    

    
The 2nd floor features the stock cars, from the early roadsters & coupes,
to the modern NASCAR race cars and trucks.



    
No matter what era of racing you enjoyed, from the old flat heads, to the solar-powered
racers of the future, you're sure to find lots to enjoy and learn at EMMR.



 

Throughout EMMR you will find dozens of display cases, each one with it's own
informative theme about a track, driver, or racing organization from racing's past.



EMMR's Wall of Honor, where you can purchase a custom engraved brick.



EMMR boasts one of the finest motorsports research libraries in the country



We are also proud to announce that as of 2004, EMMR is
now the home of the Chris Economaki Collection.


    
EMMR's versatile, multi-purpose Audio/Visual/Multimedia
Theater also doubles as a conference room
.




    
The EMMR Gift Shop carries an extensive line of books,
videos,  photos & artwork, as well as EMMR apparel,
souvenirs, collectibles and much, much more!





    
EMMR is a living museum!  The museum is a constant work in
