Here is your update.

If the vote ended today, Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum would take the honor.

Of course, the vote does not end on January 7th, it concludes on January 15th. You still have a little more than a week to cast your vote.

Can Barber hold on? Will the Birmingham Botanical Gardens or Vulcan make a run?
