The 80’s. The greatest decade ever! Nintendo, MTV, Indiana Jones, Apple, boom boxes, and the list goes on and on. We celebrate the decade as the New England Antique Racers bring their vintage race cars back to familiar haunts as many of those machines will be making their return to what was once Fleury Farm.
In addition to the drivers of years past, the new Street Stock Showdown Series touches down for their first-ever visit. Originally scheduled to be their inaugural event on June 16, Mother Nature rained on that parade forcing the series to kick off at the biggest venue around, New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Corey Hutchings won the event as part of the New England Short Track Showdown.
The R.E. Hinkley Super Streets and T-Bird Mini Mart Wildcats will also be in action as part of the night’s race card.
Pop up those collars, peg your jeans, break out the Aqua Net, and get to the track early and play along with our 80’s trivia beginning at 6:40 PM.
It should be a radical night!
