Indianapolis Motor Speedway Track Time

NASCAR events always bring out some strange folks!

We recently have been telling you a lot about the Talladega Spoiler Reunion but was not the only event for our cars this year. One that will be remembered for a long time was the display and track time at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this past August. Event was held in conjunction with the NASCAR Brickyard 400. The cars were displayed in the infield Friday, Saturday and Sunday. This event was held in conjunction with other clubs and included the MOPAR Aero Cars as well as a group of vintage racers from the Chicago area.

I will not go into a lot of detail but will let the video show you what the Speedway looks like from the racer’s perspective. If you think you like this, keep checking back here for more info on a similar event upcoming at the Bristol Motor Speedway this spring!

Some of my first and strongest memories from my childhood relate to cars. I still remember when things happened based on what car I was driving at the time. I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California and now live in Tennessee. I was a Corvette fanatic for years but then re-discovered vintage American Muscle. My wife, Katrina, and I decided we wanted to focus on unique and rare muscle cars. After a lot of research we fell in love with the Ford Blue Oval Aero Cars. These were only built in 1969 and and aerodynamics became an important part of winning races. The only purpose of these limited production cars was to win NASCAR races using the Boss 429 and 427 power plants complimented with a special, wind cheating, aerodynamic body. The Ford Talladega and Mercury Cyclone Spoiler II are terrific and historic cars. This site is devoted to these car and their owners past and present. We provide an Online Registry for recording the long term history and ownership of every remaining Talladega, Spoiler and Spoiler II.
