Long Island Racers and Cars Sought
July 4, 2014

On August 16, 2014, Riverhead Raceway will be conducting a Long Island Auto Racing Hall of Fame Induction. To help celebrate this event the track is seeking vintage race cars that competed at the following tracks located on the island: Freeport, Islip, West Hampton and of course, Riverhead.

There will be two (2) practice sessions of twenty (20) laps each for the cars as track time. There will be current series drivers there who would be willing to take the cars out for some laps. There is the possibility of racing IF enough people want to run their cars in competition, (that makes this a NON-NEAR event).

They are seeking Vintage Tour Modifieds, Late Models, and Midgets that were run when Long Island was a hot bed of racing. The car owner and the driver will be allowed in for free. A special request is being made for cars run by Geoff Bodine, Bugs Stevens, Bill Greco, Richie Evans and the other "greats" who made the trip to be part of the big shows.

There will be tow money available to help defray the cost.

They also desire the drivers who ran these cars to participate in the celebration. SO if you raced here and can make please partake in this event.

Sign in time is Noon on August 16, 2014.
Riverhead Raceway, Route 58, Riverhead, NY.
