Vintage Celebration ("Vic Yerardi Memorial") is the largest on track Vintage oval race car event in the US.

Eligible Vintage cars include: Midget, Sprints, Champ cars, Indy cars and Stock cars

The event was the brainchild of Bob Bahre, the former track owner, and the late Vic Yerardi, a huge supporter of the Vintage Car movement.

The event name was changed after Vic Yerardi, (photo 1), (photo 2), (photo 3), passed away in 1991. It is now known as the "Vic Yerardi Memorial".

Cars travel from as far away as California and Florida to participate in the event.

Car count has been averaging 175. We are committed to increasing that count to over 200 for 2010.


So please get the word out, tell all you friends and neighbors about this very special one of a kind event. If you have any questions, comments or concerns names, emails address and phone numbers can be found in the "Contact Info" section of this web site.

This is definitely the largest gathering of Vintage Open Wheel Race Cars in the country.

Curious what an Offy sounds like at speed?
Curious what 5-10 Offys at speed sound like?
Curious what a Champ car
sounds like at speed?

Come out and experience with us what has been one of the best kept secrets. Expect to be impressed by the facility, by the people and by the CARS!

Each year a Grand Marshall is named for the celebration. In past years, notables like Roger Ward, A.J. Watson, Buster Werke, Ron Bouchard, Ken Squier & Arlen Curtis were honored. For 2010 it will be Bobby Allison.

We look forward to seeing you there in 2016!


A Special Thank You goes out to all Entrants and Volunteers. YOU are what make this
event so special.

See you at the track...
