Hundreds of vintage race cars and motorcycles, along with a classic car show and an automotive flea market and car corral, highlight the 19th Annual Vintage Racing Celebration and Classic Car Show at New Hampshire Motor Speedway from Tuesday, May 12 through Sunday, May 17.

Regarded as one of the top vintage racing events in the country, the celebration features three days of oval racing on the 1.058-mile speedway, and three days of road racing on the historic 1.6-mile road course.

On Tuesday, May 12 through Thursday, May 14, some of the most famous Midgets, Sprint Cars, Champ Cars, Roadsters, and NASCAR stock cars will fill the speedway's 1.058 mile oval.

From Friday, May 15 to Sunday, May 17, the 1.6 mile road course at NHMS will challenge veteran competitors from the world of road racing in both sports cars and motorcycles.

The added attractions to this year's event are the return of the classic car show, and the addition of an automotive-related flea market and car corral on Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17.  Vehicles from throughout the northeast will be showcased at the show, including classics, customs and hot rods from many of the area car clubs.  The car corral and vendor displays will provide bargain hunters with some great deals.

"New Hampshire Motor Speedway becomes Walt Disney World for vintage racing and car enthusiasts," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway. "We've made a concerted effort to make this year's event bigger and better with wider appeal."
