The transport carrying this car drove all night from Texas to Wisconsin for the SCCA races at Road America.

If You Could Read My Mind

We’ve never noticed race track beauty queens at any vintage races we’ve previously attended.  I’m sure if they were there, we’d have noticed.

Also racing in the prewar class was this Chevrolet powered sprint car.  Not much suspension on an old sprint car.

Run So Far

Run So Far

We traditionally spend Fathers Day at Blackhawk Farms Raceway,  located on the Wisconsin – Illinois border near South Beloit.  The shorter two mile seven turn track is popular with the lower powered “prewar” MG T series cars, some of which actually get driven to the track, raced and then driven home.  No trailer queens, them.
