"Speedy" Bill Smith's Museum of American Speed at Speedway Motors. Amazing.
Incredibly, this was all created by one guy—automotive icon “Speedy” Bill Smith, in 1952. And even today, the 83-year-old Smith still presides over the whole operation. Even with its obvious success, Speedway Motors continues to be a family business.
The museum’s exhibit designer Jarrid Roulet was kind enough to give my family and me a personal tour of the collection. His knowledge and enthusiasm was evident throughout the two hours that he spent with us.
