Our next Vintage race is Saturday, August 31, at Dom's Raceway. Track opens 5 PM, free practice until about 6:30 PM. First race starts a few minutes after. Please call me with any questions - (609) 713-3696. Thanks, Dominick.

1) First race: mid-1960s era 36D-powered production chassis cars made by Gar-Vic, Cox, Classic, Renwall, Dynamic. Any body from that time era is okay. No brass or steel pan cars in this race. I have a few loaner cars ready if you want to try before you hunt one down for your own.

2) Second race: American Line Sportsman/hot rod kit cars sold by REH Distributing, also 36D motors. I have a few kits in stock for $49 each.  Also a few loaners will be ready if you want to try before you buy.

If any one would like to just stop by and take a look, you're welcome, too!

Frank- rules are such: stock 36D motor, any mid 1960's era production chassis (no scratch builds;  inline or sidewinder, no anglewinders), reissue bodies of mid 1960s era bodies allowed, basically trying to race cars as they were raced in the mid 1960's. I try to race cars that are all vintage era parts. One such car is a Garvic chassis, i race it with a period factory painted Chapparral body vs the original Sonic Needle body, and soft pink Candies on the rear. Even the guide flag and screw on braid are original period parts. Another is a Cyclone Avenger, Candies on the rear, but i use a modern guide flag as the factory guide does not work well at all.  At our last race I chose a Cox Cheetah with Buzco silicone/rubber rears, all Cox otherwise. Modern controllers allowed. 

 

    I do not race to win, I race for FUN. I want to experience what I watched as a youngster in basements and at raceways but did not participate in until about 1970, and I raced h.o. scale then. So now I am enjoying the "big cars".

 

  Hope to see you at our next race, and bring some friends. I have heard of guys racing vintage cars in Pa so it would be great to have you race with us.
