Today, sometimes the original Trans Am drivers will come to our races. And, occasionally, one will race with us in his original car.

 

Other old-time racers come, too, as admiring rivals from other race series. We also get family members, workers, journalists, and former crew members who show up to visit with the cars and share personal memories.
