What are US Legends Race Cars?

It was in April of 1992 that the first Legends Car was unveiled at the Lowe's Motor Speedway. The concept of creating a fun and affordable "spec" class of racing for anyone to participate in was born. President and General Manager of LMS, H.A. "Humpy" Wheeler and Elliott Forbes-Robinson, famed road racing champion, designed these 5/8-scale fiberglass full-fendered versions of the famed NASCAR modifieds driven by legendary drivers such as Fireball Roberts, Buck Baker, Curtis Turner, Speedy Thompson and Banjo Matthews.

Since that time, the Legends Cars have become one of the fastest growing segments of motorsports today. With drivers being classified into four different divisions, Legends Cars is THE racing opportunity that is available to anyone! The Pro Division is for the experienced drivers. The Masters Division features drivers 40 years and older. The Semi-Pro Division is the novice class, featuring the drivers that are new to the sport or have been inactive in other forms of racing for a while. Then there is the Young Lions Division which is designated for the drivers between the ages of 12 and 16. Since the car stays the same from division to division, it is the driver that makes the difference!

There are five (5) Legends body styles as these pictures demonstrate ...

INEX's primary goals are to promote uniform rules and safety standards for the 600 Racing, Inc. program. INEX officials collect and disseminate information regarding all types of 600 Racing cars, supervise and train all technical inspectors and assist and support all Legends racing programs.

Since the Legends Cars inception, there have been more than 9,000 sanctioned races. INEX sanctions races on both asphalt and dirt ovals as well as road courses.

INEX remains dedicated to the highest standards of safety and cost-containment from which the rules are interpreted and enforced while maintaining a fun, family-oriented environment.
