MODIFIED RACERS REUNION &
VINTAGE CAR SHOW
SPEEDWEEKS 2008 @ New Smyrna Speedway
After having a real good meeting with New Smyrna Speedway General
Manager Terry Roberts, we are yet another few steps closer to having
everything in alignment.
All pre-registered Drivers and Vintage Car owners will
receive a free grandstand pass for the evenings race program,
highlighted by the “Richie Evans Memorial 100” for the Nascar Tour-type
Modifieds. We will also be introducing our attending drivers to the fans
during pre-race activities, and a chance to meet your favorites and
collect some autographs and pictures.
Vintage Car owners will also get some track time to get a few
laps on the high-banked, and recently repaved ˝ mile speedway. There
will be a special parking area for these cars, and you will not have to
reload between the reunion site and the
surface. Due to the lack of push-trucks, I’m sorry to say that this
portion will be limited to self-starting vehicles only. These
participants will also be introduced to the fans, along with the history
behind these machines. I guarantee that there will be a wide variety of
racing vehicles from the past.
The concession stands will be opened early to accommodate our
reunion guests with food and drinks available. They will also be opening
the grandstand gates earlier than normal, so that our group will be able
to attend the qualifying sessions for that evening’s races.
Make sure to bring your autograph books, cameras, diecast
collectibles, scrapbooks, T-shirts, or anything else you’d like to have
these heroes of our sport sign for you.
This event will be on Friday, February 15th, 2008 at the New
Smyrna Speedway, located on the
corner of Hwy. 44 and County Rd. 415 in Samsula, Florida. The show will
be from 12:00 Noon until 5:00 PM. Hauler parking will begin at 9:00 AM,
with the racing program starting at 7:00 PM.

that this promises to bring.
