Legend Car racing, one of the fastest growing and most affordable types of American motorsports, will kick off its inaugural full season at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this Saturday afternoon, beginning approximately at 5:15 p.m.

Powered by a motorcycle engine, a Legend Car is a purpose-built race car designed to resemble the legendary American automobiles of the 1930s and ’40s. Drivers range in age from 12 to 65 years old. 

The Amisoil Nelcar Legends Tour is the New England based tour with several local connections including, New Hampshire drivers Matt Chagnot, Dan Winters and Ryan Hammer. 

“The Magic Mile” will feature ten Amisoil Nelcar Legend events on both the 1.6-mile road course and .25-mile U.S. Legend oval.
