Site for the Blind…obviously.

Echoing Tony’s sentiments, I think putting the NASCAR museum is a joke. And apparently, so does CAP/ADID with this steaming pile of a website for their NASCAR museum bid. Aside from having no pictures or even artist renderings of the museum (but two of the Georgia Aquarium, the photos of the CNN tour, a shadowy Centennial Olympic Park, and what appears to be a futuristic melange of Midtown, COP and Underground Atlanta with enough fireworks to belie that someone obviously blew smoke up the asses of the “pit crew” to get this online.

A little harsh, yes, but at least I’m in good company. Right, Walter Woods?

Atlanta’s NASCAR Hall of Fame bid team pulled the cover off its Web site Friday, complete with the hall’s would-be logo and an image of Centennial Olympic Park under a fireworks display.

But the site, www.halloffameatlanta.com, leaves out a number of key details, even a rendering of what the attraction might look like. The home page image is of Centennial Olympic Park during an imagined event, not the proposed racing shrine.

Atlanta is in a tight race with Charlotte, Kansas City, Daytona Beach, Fla., and Richmond, Va., to become NASCAR’s Cooperstown. Some of those efforts have launched Web sites (Charlotte has not) and all have released renderings, finances and other details of their NASCAR proposals to the public. Charlotte’s proposal includes the $137.5 million cost and where the money would come from.

But details of Atlanta’s bid, which could include as much as $25 million in state money, are still under wraps. The Atlanta bid committee refused to show the public any part of the proposal it delivered in May.

For those interested parties, there is a poll on ThatsRacin.com for where the NASCAR museum should be located. While it’s not official by any means, it shouldn’t be a surprise that when people see a NASCAR museum, they obviously don’t see it in Atlanta.
