OUR STORY

image28

In 2001 Jim Cox decided to start a Vintage Racing Club in the Kansas City area. He recruited some racers to bring back some nostalgic racing. Jim and a few friends, built some cars from a simple set of rules, got some tracks to let us race and bring back some racing memories of days gone by.

SMVR MISSION STATEMENT (Racing on a dirt track near you!)

image29

The mission of this club is to bring back some Nostalgia to racing and cars that are identifiable and to show people what their dads and grandfathers used to race.  It also gives some seasoned drivers a chance to get behind the wheel again. Guess you could call it the last Hurrah Club.

SMVR is a group of racers committed to keeping the memory of past racing and race cars from the Vintage years (1920’s through 1960’s and some 1970’s) alive! Our Rules are designed to provide affordable and competitive entertainment!
