On FOX43 morning news, Drew Anderson asked Lynn Paxton, the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing President, why it's important to him to persevere and share racing history.

Lynn shared, "I like to see how motor racing started, and I like sharing that perspective with our visitors.  We have a Sprint Car from the 1920s and then dozens from the 20s through the 2000s, so really see how they changed over time."

They have close to 100 motor car that tell a story and history.
