What is a Legend race car?

How did they begin?

It was in April of 1992 that the first Legend Car was unveiled at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. The concept of creating a fun and affordable "spec" class of racing for anyone to participate in was born. Legend Cars are 5/8-scale fiberglass full-fendered versions of the famed NASCAR modifieds driven by legendary drivers such as Fireball Roberts, Buck Baker, Curtis Turner, Speedy Thompson, and Banjo Matthews.
Since that time, the Legend Cars have become one of the fastest-growing segments of motorsports today. With drivers being classified into four different divisions, Legend Cars are THE racing opportunity that is available to anyone! The Pro Division is for experienced drivers. The Masters' Division features drivers 40 years and older. The Semi-Pro Division is the novice class, featuring the drivers that are new to the sport or have been inactive in other forms of racing for a while. The cars were brought over to the UK in the early 90's and have thrived since then.. Since the car stays the same from division to division, it is the driver that makes the difference!
