1340 Old Racetrack Road
Dillon South Carolina
Update October 8 2015
Oct 9-10 event
Rescheduled to March 2016
Due to the impending weather for Oct 10 2015, we have decided to postpone the event until March 2016. The exact weekend date will be released in the near future. Mother-nature is just not cooperating. With the ground already saturated and impending rain at a 90% chance for Saturday during the day, as well as many roads still being affected including I-95, we feel this is the best interest of all participants and fans. Many people would be traveling in on Saturday, and with lodging expenses, we are trying to alleviate that issue. Most of the long distance travelers have been contacted prior to this post.
Please mark your calendars and plan accordingly. The interest and buzz this event has generated has been tremendous. Way beyond the organizers expectations! This will be an event you for sure you will not want to miss! It is our hope, that with the rescheduling, it will allow even more participants to come, other than the 46 committed pre-registered participants and six vintage clubs that would have been represented on Oct 10 at Dillon Motor Speedway.
The trophies are purchased, the door prizes are here, the track is ready and the event will go on! If you have any Questions please feel free to call
Mack Tatum at 804-338-9065!
In the mean time support your local Vintage racing club and local short track!

Schedule subject to change
***Raffle for the two National Championship races***
Everyone who starts in the Modified National Championship event and the Sportsman National Championship event will have one ticket placed in the drawing for that event. $200 will be placed in the raffle funds and each ticket sale will increase the pot by $10. The race starters can buy raffle tickets for $10 each and for each ticket purchased you will get another chance to win. At the end of each race the race winner will draw one ticket from the bucket and that winning ticket holder will receive the proceeds from the raffle. 100% of the funds from raffle ticket sales for each event go to the pot for that event. What a great chance to pay for your weekend and every participant is afforded the chance to win not based on a fast racecar!
Practice Friday will cost $50 per car unlimited crew.
Pit passes: On Saturday Vintage Drivers are free with car and Crew members are $25 each!
Remember guys it costs money to open up a track for people to work, electricity, flagmen, cleanup crew and Insurance not to mention a few other things. The Family run operation at Dillon Speedway has graciously opened up and provided a venue for this great event! We should all be thankful and tell Ron and his staff thanks when you see them.
Friday Oct 9 2015.
Track will open at 12 noon and be open till about 6 pm for Vintage car practice and vintage car inspections.
Fridays cost will be $50 per car unlimited people!
The infield concessions will be open with a limited menu for Friday. As a bonus you will be allowed to purchase your entry for Saturday’s event Friday afternoon at the practice. No need to be in line Saturday morning so get them Friday night and avoid the wait to get in the track!
Saturday Oct 10 2015.
Track will open gates for Vintage cars only. Upon entering the pits on Saturday all vintage competitors will designate their club status and draw a pill for the starting positions. Vintage car Safety inspections will begin ASAP. Tire building will open as soon as possible. It is recommended you bring your rims with no tires on them to speed tire mounting along. Mounting will be $20 a set for your free tires!
Drivers Briefing at start finish line. Not mandatory but highly recommended especially if you have never been here before.
As soon as briefing is over round robin practice for vintage cars will begin. The goal is to get at least two rounds of practice for all clubs and groups. More practice if time allows.
Gates will open for Dillon Speedway Late Model and Truck divisions. Their practice will be worked into the round robin as time permits.
The Trucks and Late Models will qualify (Subject to change)
Mandatory vintage competitior drivers meeting.
Pit party on front stretch with vintage cars! Have your postcards and sharpies ready for the people!
Green flag! Race order will be determined on Saturday and lineups will be posted as soon as possible. All starting positions will be determined by draw for all races. The starting order for the national championship races will also be determined by pill draw.
Racing divisions will generally be run by club rules for each club participating. If you are a visitor and are running with an unfamiliar club because your car fits with them best, talk to those guys and be familiar with how they race.
National Championship races are basically run what ya brung, but you better bring a good attitude! Any intentional rough driving you will be black flagged and race control decisions are FINAL. Spotters are recommended and raceceivers allowed (freq to be supplied later!) A successful event is one with no bent up racecars from intentional contact. Accidents happen and we all resolve to that upon entering the track. Like I said, “BRING A GOOD ATTITUDE!”
This event is about having fun fellowship and sharing your cars with others with the same interests. Mind you the fastest car should always win but not at the expense of another participants car. If you feel the need to be that competitive build you a Late Model and go have at it. Those guys will police you when needed!
$$$ *BIG NEWS* $$$
Two Weeks till race time!!
A great Arrangement of trophies for the Southern Vintage Racecar Nationals is going to be given away.
I am proud to announce that for the two big National Championship Modified and Sportsman races, one participant in each race will win a MINIMUM of $200 for just running in the big races. Each participant can increase their chances of receiving the raffle proceeds by buying a $10 raffle tickets. All the money goes to the pot and will be paid back to the winner of the raffle. If ten tickets are sold that will increase the raffle to $300 and so on!
This is a good chance to win just due to participating in the race. Every car has a chance to win and even more chances if they purchase a raffle ticket! What a great opportunity for a some funds! Very possible you can pay for the weekend with that little tid-bit!
Remember… its about having fun and good fellowship. Showing the fans some cool vintage cars and most importantly……
