Historic Stock Cars, Muscle Cars On Display; Race Day Shuttles Available
Friday, July 22, 2011
Some of the most iconic cars in NASCAR history and a fabulous collection of rods, customs and muscle cars will be on display July 29-31 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the Brickyard 400 presented by Big Machine Records.com.
The Brickyard 400 Vintage and Stock Car Show will give fans the rare opportunity to take pictures and interact with the vehicle owners and restorers of a fabulous collection of Superbirds, Ford Talladegas and other cars from NASCAR’s past.
One of the NASCAR classic cars that will be on display will be the No. 7 1970 Plymouth Superbird driven by Ramo Stott to top-10 finishes in the 1970 Daytona 500 and Talladega 500. Stott also won the 1970 ARCA 300 at Daytona and Vulcan 500 at Talladega in this car. Powered by a 426 Hemi engine with everything original on the car except for the exterior paint, this is the only remaining Superbird in original, as-raced configuration.
Another special car on display will be the Holman Moody No. 98 Ford Torino that was owned and driven by the legendary Benny Parsons to 1968 and 1969 ARCA championships. NASCAR pioneer Wendell Scott later drove it in ARCA and NASCAR Grand National East competition.
Goodguys Rod & Custom Association, the world’s largest rod and custom association, will display more than 100 cars. Goodguys events showcase a variety of American-made rods, customs, classics, trucks, street machines and muscle cars.
