About 4th Annual Legends of Ascot Vintage Race Car Reunion, Show & Race

Description

The Legends of Ascot announces its 4th annual event honoring drivers Jimmy Oskie, Wally Pankratz, Walt James, Jack Bruner and Leland McSpadden, JFK car owners Jack and Wilda Kendoll, and aluminum block engine builder Ed Donovan, with the possibility of a "special guest" honoree. It will feature an expanded program. "Keeping with our tradition, our goal is to preserve the memories of those great days of racing at Ascot and of the people who participated, and pass them on to future generations of racers and fans alike", said Don Weaver, founder of the event. Racing enthusiasts from all over the US and Canada have enjoyed what has now become the largest open wheel racers reunion in the country. The event celebrates the people involved in the 33 years of operation from 1957 to 1990 at Ascot Park, in Gardena, California. Ascot was the nationally renown premier � mile dirt track on the West Coast, and many of the drivers of the era were starters of the Indianapolis 500 during the period. Past honorees include Parnelli Jones, Hal Minyard, Allen Heath, Dean Thompson, Ted Halibrand, Bobby Hogle and J. C. Agajanian to name a few. The Legends of Ascot Annual Event draws Vintage Race Cars from all over North America. From Midgets, Sprints, and Dirt Champ cars, to Indy cars of the era, some of the most historic cars from the USAC national circuit and the CRA have been displayed. In all, the Event averages 30+ Vintage Race Cars each year. After the day's activities, the Vintage Race Cars will have the opportunity to stretch their legs on the �-mile clay oval at Perris Auto Speedway in the Legends of Ascot Vintage Car Exhibition Heat Races, during the USAC/CRA sprint car event that evening. The event is open to the public, and gives race enthusiasts the opportunity to meet and talk with some of the best drivers of the era. Admission to the Event includes plenty of "bench racing", snacks, the award presentations, auctions, raffles, an excellent buffet lunch, collectable souvenir program, the vintage racecar display, and admission to the USAC/CRA sprint car event. Every year the event sells out and Don suggests that attendees order their tickets to the event as soon as possible; Admission: $45.00 until 9/15/06 - $55.00 thereafter.
