Our Vintage racers were on track during the Sunday of the SCCBC's 'Summer Sizzler' August 3rd-4th Weekend at Mission Raceway Road Course. In addition to these 'golden oldies', there was lots of other great action throughout the weekend as well.

This weekend also featured the Family Affair Racing Team (aka F.A.R.T.) fourth annual Formula Vee Invitational Race. The Vees always put on a great show from the front to the back of the pack and this year was no different. More info on the F.A.R.T. Facebook page (here).

The final results are available on the Race Results - 2013 Season page (here).

Check out Brent Martin's photos of the action below.
