The Henry Ford

Dearborn, MI 48124
From soap box derbies to Indy car, stock car and drag racing, Driven to Win: Racing in America presented by General Motors guides visitors through the lives of those who invented their way into the winner's circle and often changed the world in the process.

In this new permanent exhibition, you'll be transported to the winner's circle through interactive displays that include historic race cars, a multisensory theater, a pit crew challenge, racing simulators and more. You'll follow the twists and turns of American racing history, and you'll see how passionate people engineered world-changing innovations through the likes of racing icons such as A.J. Foyt, Lyn St. James, Dan Gurney and Bobby Unser. Learn about the racing world’s most dynamic personalities, ranging from Barney Oldfield, driver of Henry Ford's "999" in the early 1900s, to modern-day gymkhana sensation Ken Block.

Regardless of what your interest might be, the progression from competitive passion to innovation to winning is the same. And the sport of auto racing is especially good at bringing this sequence to life, as vibrantly illustrated throughout the exhibition. Feel the energy and emotion as you immerse yourself in the stories, images, thrills and sounds of auto racing.
