Vintage Cars heading to Sandusky July 16th.

Postby Ron Verash » Thu Jun 26, 2014 8:21 pm


It’s about a month before the one and only 2014 BioBased US Open Wheel Extravaganza at historic Sandusky [OH] Speedway. Not only is this going to be an awesome one off open wheel event but a day of Motorsports entertainment for the entire family. July the 16th will be the first time an event this large and this diversified has been presented and on a Wednesday to boot. One of the many fan friendly activities taking place will be the gathering of vintage race cars. Here is a partial list of the hot rods of yesteryear that will be there for you to drool over.

#3 1975 Cicanese Chassis, 1975 Eldora champion, won 10 features in 1975. Jim Linder only ran this car one
season. Car is 95% original and has its unrestored wooden top wing. Owned, restored and driven by Linder.

#33 1970 Holynski Roadster big block 427 Chevy power. Campaigned By Paul Strasser of
Sandusky, Ohio from 1970 - 1979. The Holynski Roadster with Strasser behind the
wheel qualified 6 times for the Oswego Classic. Owned by Randy & Jane Mapus of

We are very proud of the fact that quite a few of these cars have a history at Sandusky Speedway and of course Jim Linder’s #3 will be the crown jewel of the show. Not only will these famous racecars from the past be on display before the evening’s races but they will be taking laps during both the American and the Canadian National Anthems. With the proper amount of encouragement they might even run an actual race.

The gates open at 3pm for both the pits and the grandstand area. Racing begins at 7pm. A pit pass is $35, the grandstands are $20 and kids 12 and under are always free. For more information call 440-376-3919.
