World of Speed is proud to announce the opening of a new exhibit over Veterans Day weekend celebrating Harley-Davidson’s long history with the U.S. military and the iconic brand’s influence on American culture. The exhibit will feature 10 motorcycles spanning the past century, including a bike ridden by Clarence "Clay" Morrow, played by Ron Perlman, a fictional character in the FX television series Sons of Anarchy. The Harley-Davidson exhibit will be on display for a year through November 2019.

World of Speed will be kicking off Veterans Day weekend with a museum member-only talk and tour with Curator Ron Huegli at 11:00am, a great opportunity to hear the history and culture of Harley-Davidson in America. From 12 — 2 pm, Cort Webber and 105.9 The Brew street team will be onsite celebrating the opening and giving away chances to win awesome prizes and helping to collect Turkey Ride donations.

The Turkey Ride is sponsored by Latus Motors Harley-Davidson in Gladstone and helps homeless veterans supported by Fort Kennedy through the holidays. Fort Kennedy is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization developed to provide necessary food, clothing, and resources for homeless veterans and their families. With the donation of canned/boxed food visitors will receive half-off admission. With the donations of a frozen turkey, visitors will receive a free admission ticket. World of Speed will be accepting donations through the end of November.

Mark your calendars for an amazing exhibit and a fantastic Veterans Day salute and celebration!
