"The other exhibit that we are working on later this year we worked with a partner to move that into 2021 so this is going to be extended through a majority of 2020," Kelley said. "We are really excited about it."

The exhibit, which debuted in February, features a number of trucks, including one from the very beginning.

The exhibit also features artifacts, helmets, trophies and race reports.

"There’s about a dozen different helmets," Kelley said. "The helmets are one place that driver’s personalities can jump out and you can see that."
