We are off to the 40th Reunion of the NASCAR Aero cars this weekend at the Talladega Super Speedway. This reunion is only held once every five years at the Speedway. It is a great group of people who all love the Aero cars. Most don’t care if you own a Blue Oval or a Mopar, they just treasure the cars. This year the Club has put together a great series of events. As always, owners will be driving these rare cars not just showing them. There will be no judged show but they will be on display one day at the Speedway. There will also be a tour of a high quality Mopar car collection as well as a tour of the museum at the Speedway. A couple of NASCAR races are also on the schedule. The highlight of the weekend for many will be our Parade Lap of Talladega Speedway just prior to the NASCAR Sprint CUP Race on Sunday.
I am not sure how many cars will be there this year. Cars eligible for the Reunion are the winged 1969 Dodge Daytona and 1970 Plymouth Superbird, 1969 Dodge 500, 1969 Ford Torino and Talladega, 1969 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler and Spoiler II.
As for our Talladega, we got the final updates made this past weekend. This included changing out the Magnum 5oo wheels for some correct steel wheels and new BFG Radial TAs. Some updated photos of the car’s new (original) look are included below. To see the full process Click Here.
