Choose Bowling Green

Welcome to our motorsports playground in Bowling Green, Kentucky! Home to the GM Assembly Plant where every Corvette in the world is made, we know a thing or two about horsepower and adrenaline. From hosting large events like the Holley LS Fest and the Tri-Five Nationals, to specialized car groups like Cultural Awareness Corvette Weekend and Buick GS Nationals, what better place than Bowling Green to host your motorsports event? 

No wonder some folks call us Hot Rod City, USA instead of simply 'Vette City these days. And with the additional opportunities to burn rubber at different venues in town, we're quickly becoming the must-visit destination for auto buffs of all kinds.

Bring your event to Beech Bend Raceway, an auto racing facility since 1948 that is nationally recognized for its drag strip as well as a storied oval track once busy with stock car racing but now more widely used for drifting competitions and vendor showcases. 

NCM Motorsports Park boasts a 3.2 mile high performance professional track perfect for large events or private rentals for car clubs. While this track is part of the overall Corvette campus, this track welcomes all automotives to let loose on the pavement from Corvettes to Camaros and motorcycles to hot rods and everything in between. 

Bowling Green is a motorsports planner’s dream - incredible venues and over 3,200 hotel rooms at familiar accommodations, in a naturally beautiful area that is centrally located, easily accessible, affordable, and brimming with Southern hospitality. Our smaller city makes it easier to navigate through safer communities. We have over 300 restaurants to celebrate with the team, and a large array of family attractions to enjoy before or after the game! 

Not only does Bowling Green have great attractions & accommodations, it’s easily accessible from just about anywhere! From I-65, I-165 and numerous highways, Bowling Green is located within a day’s drive of 2/3 of the country’s population. Additionally, BG is located less than an hour north of the Nashville International Airport.
