    A New England racing museum is in the works at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

    Speedway leaders broke ground Friday on the North East Motor Sports Museum. The attraction will protect and preserve the stories and artifacts of the region's racing and riding past.

    The museum will be built in two phases, for a total size of 20,000 square feet.

    The building will be used to house the history of motorsports from the Northeast area with multiple displays of racing vehicles and racing related artifacts.

    Construction is expected to start this fall.
