Star City Motor Madness draws from throughout the Mid-Atlantic and beyond. Through fees from the participants and donations from sponsors, the event raises money for the Virginia Museum of Transportation which is located in Roanoke as well as other non-profit organizations. For spectators all activities are free!
As was the case the last 14 years, in 2016 most proceeds will go the Virginia Museum of Transportation Automotive Gallery. The museum is famous for its diverse collection of America’s transportation history with an impressive collection of railroad “rolling stock” including the famous Norfolk and Western J611 streamlined steam locomotive. The museum has developed an automotive gallery and funds raised by Star City Motor Madness help with changing exhibits in the gallery.
