The recent Waterford Event in July was well attended and a big hit with the crowd. The Mobile Museum was on hand along with a nice group of antique cars on display and running. NEAR also had an event on the same day up north at Speedway 51, N.H. The sharing and preservation of New England’s Racing History is alive and well at each track we visit!
