Motorsports Venues - Palm Beach International Raceway Hosts V8Stockcar Series Feb. 18-19
Jupiter, February 17, 2012: For the third year in a row the Crane Cams V8 StockCar Series will partner and race with Historic Sportscar Racing. Last year the V8 series enjoyed participating in HSR's signature event, "The Mitty", and in 2010 we helped bring back the thunder to the Savannah Harbor Race Course on Hutchinson Island. The event runs February 16-19 at Palm Beach International Raceway, with the V8 Series competing on the 18th & 19th.
HSR is well known for bringing fast, classic sports and GT cars back to their natural habit....the race track! These guys don't parade either, they RACE. Some of the most significant race cars of the last five or six decades can be found pounding the pavement at Daytona, Sebring, Road Atlanta, Watkins Glen and more with HSR.
Cars like the Porsche 935, 962, Nissan GTP, Chevy Corvette GTP and Intrepid, the Audi R8, Ferrari 512's, Dekon Monza's, Greenwood Corvette's, plus some of the best SCCA Trans Am cars that ever raced, running lap times that are still competitive are found still racing with HSR.
Some of the outstanding V8 Racers expected for the Palm Beach weekend include 2011 V8 SPO Champion Paul Breehne in his new Mustang, four time V8 GT-1 Champ Dave Machavern in his Heritage Motorsports silhouette version of a 1963 Ford Falcon, multi time V8 winner Bill Riddell in the sister Falcon, also built by Tommy Riggins, two time V8 GTA champion Randy Walker in his new Howe Camaro. Charles Wicht will be on hand in his Rocketsports Corvette, Cameron Lawrence and Hall Robertson will compete in their fast V8 GTA rides as well as newcomer Mike Wilson in his V8 GTA Grand Prix. Mickey Wright is entered in her V8 SPO Ford Fusion and Lee Arnold in his familiar number 0 Chevy Impala. Pete Kirill will have his Riggins Competition prepped Camaro ready to go. Pete cut some terrific laps at Daytona last fall and could be a factor in the V8 GT1 race. ARRC winner Simon Gregg will be in his smokin' fast Derhaag Motorsports Corvette surely jeopardizing the the V8 Series track record. Last years V8 GT2 Palm Beach winner Dell Haverland returns in another of his Corvette's.
