Driven inland by the projected crowds at Sailabraton I spent a most amazing 3 hours at the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing today. Located Just south of Dillsburg PA off or RT 15 this hidden treasure chest of motor racing artifacts that is truly a wonder to behold.
As a life long fan of, any and all, motor sports, for me the contents unleashed a flood of fond memories. But what made the visit amazing wasn't the fact that I have seen two of the cars race in their day, or the supporting contents that i found highlighted reference to all my favorite drivers from Reading, Nazareth, Langhorne, Dorney Park. But that every one in the museum, visitors, or volunteers could, and would, talk racing.
Like the # 5 of Bobby Gearhart I've seen race at Reading .
Or this veteran example of a midget, I believe to have seen race at Dorney Park a as kid.
Legendary cars, legendary engines, dusty trophies. they all are in attendance
If you're ever in the area stop on in.. You will not be disappointed And admission is free (donations are accepted) I'm already planning future trips.
