Placeholder Image

The Georgia Racing Hall of Fame Board of Directors held an inaugural meeting last week to get the ball rolling on what will soon be a monthly gathering of volunteers.


The meeting came after last month’s decision by the Dawsonville City Council to return managing control to the volunteers.


Georgia Racing Hall of Fame President Gordon Pirkle said he felt the meeting went “very well,” and that he looks forward to “what the future holds” for the group.


Located at the Dawsonville Municipal Complex, the museum houses a collection of donated or loaned-out stock cars, trophies and racing memorabilia.


The board of directors will continue to meet to talk about how to increase visitors and developing new ideas for the museum.


The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
