Inaugural Vintage Race at Kansas Speedway

Posted on 22 July 2014

Heartland Vintage Racing (HVR) is proud to announce that we’ll be hosting the first vintage car race at Kansas Speedway on September 13-14, 2014. HVR will be participating at the track in conjunction with a National Auto Sport Association (NASA) event, so there will be plenty of racing action both days.

Registration is open for participants, and you can get more information on how to get signed up to race on the event page. We want to fill the fields with as many old racing machines as possible, so please come join us!

The track, which held it’s first race in 2001, has become most well known for NASCAR racing on it’s 1.5 mile tri-oval. In 2012, a six-turn, 2.37 mile infield road course was completed, which has seen modern sports car racing with IMSA and Grand-Am competition; but the HVR event will be the first time that vintage sports cars and classic pony cars have gone wheel-to-wheel on the track.

Spectators are also welcome, and for only a $5 per person gate fee will be treated to not only vintage cars but to modern road racing as well, with NASA hosting a wide variety of competition classes. And if you’ve ever had the itch to get a little track time with your car, there are a number of novice classes plus basic (and inexpensive) HyperDrive sessions where you can take a few laps in your street car with the help of an instructor. Visit the NASA event page for more info.

Heartland Vintage Racing couldn’t have accomplished this without NASA, and we want to sincerely thank Central Region Director Matt Rivard for his assistance and support.

    This sounds like a great event and is truly exciting to see come to an area of the country that doesn’t see much road racing action. I’d love to find out some more information about this event and if things like pit passes will be allowed to get up close and personal with the world of vintage racing. Taking pictures at these events is always a great time along with talking with crews and drivers. Please feel free to email me at ben.matlack@yahoo.com with any further information u can provide. Thank you
