DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The Motorsports Hall of Fame of America is moving from the Detroit area to Daytona International Speedway.

The move was announced Friday and is expected to be completed by January 2016, coinciding with the scheduled finish of the track's $400 million renovation. The Hall of Fame is currently in Novi, Mich.

Plans call for the Hall of Fame's displays featuring cars, images, stories and bronze sculptures of 209 icons of American motorsports to be located in Daytona's Ticket and Tours Building, which was formerly known as the Daytona 500 Experience.

The Hall of Fame celebrates vehicles and artifacts from American motorsports, including open-wheel racing, stock cars, motorcycles, aviation, drag racing and powerboats.
