UPDATE - 2012 Racers Reunion in Irving, Texas is coming soon
This post was updated on .
At the 2012 Racers Reunion Banquet there will be special guests coming to help celebrate the career of Johnny Rutherford. I am proud to announce Al Unser Sr. and his wife will be attending. Al and Johnny go way back as friends and competitors. Al will surely have some great stories to tell.
Also a man who is a true legend and innovator on his own, Jim Hall, will be coming to share about his and Johnny’s rise to the top of the IndyCar world in 1980 they won the Indy 500 Pole, Indy 500 race and IndyCar Championship.
This year’s Racers Reunion on September 22nd is less than a month away. If you are still considering attending you must purchase tickets by September 17th to secure a seat. It appears, as this year will be a sell out. You can reserve a table if your group has 6-8 people.
Vintage Quarter Midget Racing was the starting point for a long list of champions. Many folks who drove these cars as kids will be here to see old friends, to hear Doug Schiller’s presentation and witness the display of over a dozen vintage quarter midget race cars from back in the day.
I hope you can make it. You won’t be disappointed with all the activities and cars on display!
