Race Cars and Classic Cars
Springtime always brings about a flurry of classic car shows in our area. One of the best in our area to officially kick off the season in the northeast combines classic cars with race cars.
The Saratoga Automobile Museum’s long standing Spring Auto Show on Sunday in the Saratoga Spa State Park held on the lawn adjacent to the museum building and is just one of the many shows in their lawn show series scheduled this season.
Race cars have traditionally been a big part of the show, but this year the nation’s premier sanctioning body for dirt modified racing DIRTcar Racing be on hand to promote their upcoming events. Local Lebanon Valley Speedway modified star Keith Flach, the “Ravena Rocket”, will be signing autographs and discussing racing with fans visiting the show.
If you have never been to the museum and you love cars, you’re really missing something. The museum features both the New York State Stock Car Association (NYSSCA) Hall of Fame and racing exhibits. That’s in addition to their ever changing series of automobile exhibits.
Someone who is into cars can get lost in automobile history for hours at the museum. For someone who loves race cars too, there is no better combination.
