About International Motorsports Hall of Fame
Since 1983, the International Motorsports Hall of Fame has been the home to some of the most historical artifacts in all of motorsports. And, beginning in 1990, the legends of motorsports who used many of those artifacts began to take their place in the prestigious venue.
On July 25th of that year, 20 of the greatest legends of the global motorsports community were enshrined in a ceremony befitting their accomplishments. In a formal affair hosted by the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and Museum, they, their families and the world learned the true meaning of the Hall's creation.
The following day, July 26, the inductees joined officials and dignitaries from the motorsports community in cutting the ribbon on a new 15,000-square-foot building designed to highlight their place in history.
Today, the IMHOF is the home to countless historic vehicles from various worlds of racing that include: stock cars, open wheel, NHRA, road racing, modified, motorcycle and much more.
In addition to the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, the facility also houses other Halls of Fame. These include the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Hall of Fame; the Quarter Midgets of America Hall of Fame; the Alabama Racing Pioneers Hall of Fame and the Alabama Sports Writer's Hall of Fame. The prestigious Henry T. McLemore Motorsports Journalism Award is also a part of the IMHOF.
All in all, the museum has something for everyone. Located just off Interstate 20, south of Talladega, it is open daily from 9-5 p.m. Now thanks to the vision of a few and the efforts of many, the IMHOF realizes its true mission, the enshrinement of the greats of motorsports.
