The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America is a Hall of Fame and museum for American motorsports legends. The museum hosts over forty motorports-related vehicles. The collection is constantly changing. There are exhibits and displays of racing personalities, vehicles, and memorabilia.

Eligibility for induction is extended to "any person who has driven, piloted, owned, designed, built, supported, maintained, prepared or promoted motorized vehicles in pursuit of speed, distance or other records." An inductee must either be retired for at least three years, or engaged in the top level for their area of motorsports for at least twenty years.

A panel of prior inductees, historians, journalists, and retired competitors vote for the final selections. Inductees receive the "Horsepower" trophy upon induction held annually in August.
