Vintage Racing Returns to Kansas Speedway

Posted on 13 March 2015

FULL INFORMATION FOR BOTH RACERS AND SPECTATORS AVAILABLE ON THE EVENT PAGE. 

Heartland Vintage Racing (HVR) is proud to announce that we’ll be returning to the Kansas Speedway on September 26-27, 2015. Last year’s event on the large “roval” was extremely well received by both racers as well as the spectators who attended. And once again, the event will be held 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 $10 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.

And for all you folks who are Ford fans, there’s a third event happening on Saturday which is tailor made just for you! The Midwest Blue Oval Club will be hosting one of their Blue Oval Rally’s in the large south lot. There will be Cobras, Shelby’s, Panteras, Mustangs, and more performance FoMoCo vehicles than you can shake a top-loader at! Click here for more information about the Blue Oval Rally.

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.

    Is there a way to add into your event description of car show that will be going on in the infield on Saturday September 26th? This would help spread the word so we can get attendance up at the car show. Here is the link on our website about the car show.
