Ed Swart Forms New West Coast Racing Assoc.
28 December 1998
Ed Swart, longtime vintage racing participant in a variety of exotic sports racing cars, has announced a tie-up with Florida based Historic Sportscar Racing wherein the well regarded sanctioning body will start up a west coast series of vintage races. The new entity will be known as HSR-West and Swart has four prominent Southern California businessmen as his partners. The series has already set race dates for Willow Springs International Raceway (where the VARA race group will not be racing in 1999), Las Vegas Speedway Park, and will shortly announce new venues. Swart hastens to point out that there is no conflict with any other vintage race groups intended and that HSR-West, operating under the HSR rules, will have classes for newer big bore race cars than some other organizations and he will concentrate on staging a few premium, well-run events that focus on quality.
