WELCOME TO THE ARIZONA OPEN WHEEL RACING MUSEUM
In the course of most real life events, a time comes when some changes, reorganization and new directions must be established and implemented. Such a time has come for the Arizona Open Wheel Racing Museum.
The grand facility that has blossomed from the dreams and efforts of our founder Steve Stroud has been experienced and enjoyed by thousands since it’s inception. The legacy will certainly continue. A contribution to the sport and it’s community of this magnitude is not something to be abandoned and that has never been the intention of anyone connected to this facility from the administrators and directors to all memebers and volunteers. The family that has been forged at the Arizona Open Wheel Racing Museum remains steadfast in it’s duty to provide a place to honor this history for generations to come.
The museum has not only had to face a much leaner and ever tightening economic situation, but has also been a victim of real estate sales and restructuring of the property that it has occupied since opening. The reduction in storage space as well as display footage has taken a toll on the ability to function under the current circumstances.
“The time has come to bring this grand vehicle into the pits for some much needed updating and fine tuning. The changes will not only prolong the life of this museum, but will improve the quality and presentation substantially. With the core group of supporters and participants in this Southwestern Racing Community, the future will be ripe with pleasant surprises” according to director, Roger Toops.
Please bear with us while we execute these programs and stay tuned for the future of the Arizona Open Wheel Racing Museum.
