Dirt! Racing on Sacramento's Legendary Tracks
November 2, 2013 through February 2, 2014


View Larger Map


The California Automobile Museum will host a wide variety of race cars from the rich dirt track racing history in and near Sacramento. This exhibit will include examples of Sprint Cars, Hardtops, Super Modifieds and more - all of which still race today!

All cars in this exhibit still race today in vintage races. Some are completely original with only safety modifications, some are replicas of specific cars in the past, and some are somewhere in between where they are the original cars but with modifications over the years as they have continued to race.

A sampling of the cars that will be on display:

Midget from the famous Vukovich family as tribute car.
Hardtop sponsored by a women's beauty salon in the mid-50s.
Supermodified that was raced by the "Manteca Terror" Johnny Brazil.
Supermodified raced and won multiple championships at West Capital.

This exhibit was put together with assistance from the West Capital Raceway Alumni Association.
